About this book

Thoroughly revised and with many new illustrations. Particular attention has been paid to recent advances in the understanding of aeolian processes and bedforms, and in the interpretation of trace fossils. It sets out a clear methodology and philosophy for understanding both present-day sediments and sedimentary rocks as the products of dynamic processes.
