About this book

Lavishly illustrated volume which represents all sedimentary environments, both ancient and modern. It provides extensive information on the geometry of bedding and sedimentary bodies, mostly from outcrops, but also including seismic sections, and detailed materials on sedimentary structures as meso-scale objects and the details of sedimentary beds: geometry, origin, and indications of process and environment of origin.

An outstanding set of illustrations that would be most useful for undergraduate and fundamental graduate classes in stratigraphy and sedimentology. Other texts rely on diagramatic representations and contain only a few clear photographic illustrations, but Sedimentographica includes a wealth of high-quality photographs for visual aid.
