About this book

This book aims to provide an introduction to, and a concise review of, principles and interpretations related to sedimentary processes, environments, and deposits. The book emphasizes application over theory and features many summary tables and figures, as well as extensive and up-to-date references. The companion volume by the same authors, "Analytical Sedimentology" provides "cookbook recipes" for common analytical procedures dealing with sediments, as well as an introduction to the principles and reference sources for procedures that generally would be performed by specialist consultants or commercial laboratories. This book should be of interest to environmental science; construction engineering; forestry; fisheries; coastal management; marine environment management; land and water management; and waste disposal.
