About this book

This volume covers the formation and biogeochemistry of a variety of important sediment types from their initial formation through their conversion (diagenesis) to sedimentary rocks. The volume deals with the chemical, mineralogical, and isotopic properties of sediments and sedimentary rocks and their use in interpreting the environment of formation and subsequent events in the history of sediments, and the nature of the ocean-atmosphere system through geological time.

Media reviews
This is a well planned and well organised book with up-to date references, and with excellent photos and graphic illustrations...it will certainly be a welcome addition to the libraries of academic institutes... -Rajat Mazumder, in JOURNAL OF SEDIMENTARY RESEARCH, APRIL 2006 "The editor and publisher should be commended for the excellent physical production of the book. The chapters are well illustrated and typographical errors are almost absent. All illustrations and photos (except for the out of focus SEM photos in chapter 8) are in black and white and are clear (three photomicrographs are in color), and the tables are easy to read. This book will serve researchers and graduate students well as a reference book on several diverse topics in sediment geochemistry." (Miriam Kastner, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, La Jolla, CA, USA)
