Summary

This is a completely revised edition of Applied Sedimentology, first published in 1988. Like its precursor, it describes
sediments from sand grains to sedimentary basins. Part 1, Rock to Sediment, introduces the concept of the sedimentary cycle,
describes weathering and soil formation, and details the fundamental physical properties of a sediment: texture, porosity, and
permeability. Part 2, Sediment Sedimented, begins by describing the transportation and deposition of sediment and the resultant
sedimentary structures. It ends with a description of the various depositional systems, sequence stratigraphy, and cyclicity. Part
3, Sediment to Rock, opens by describing how pressure, temperature, and fluid processes control petroleum and ore
formation. It continues with accounts of the evolution of porosity and permeability in carbonates and sandstones. The last
chapter describes the different types of sedimentary basins, their origins, depositional fill, and the evolution of their fluids. The
book emphasizes the applications of sedimentology to the exploration for and exploitation of natural resources, including water,
ores, and hydrocarbons. Applied Sedimentology is written principally for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students of
earth science and engineering. It may also, however, prove useful to more mature readers who explore and exploit the
sedimentary rocks for fossil fuels and mineral deposits.
