About this book

Diagenesis affects all sediments after their deposition and includes a fundamental suite of physical, chemical and biological processes that control the texture, mineralogy and fluid-flow properties of sedimentary rocks. Understanding the processes and products of diagenesis is thus a critical component in the analysis of the evolution of sedimentary basins, and has practical implications for subsurface porosity destruction, preservation and generation. This in turn is of great relevance to the petroleum and water industries, as well as to the location and nature of some economic mineral deposits.This volume brings together key papers in sandstone diagenesis published in Sedimentology over the past 30 years, recording the development of diagenesis as a subject from the description of grain shapes through provenance, petrography and analytical geochemistry to predictive models of diagenetic process. The key papers are separated into themes that describe early and burial diagenetic processes. There is also an introduction to provide a contextual framework for the papers included in the compilation that provides definitions and explanations of the terms and concepts used in diagenesis. As such the book will be of value to students of sedimentology, earth surface processes and environmental geochemistry at undergraduate and post-graduate levels, as well as providing a reference guide for researchers in the field of sandstone diagenesis.
