Sedimentology and Stratigraphy. – 2a edición
Nichols, Gary (Autor)
Sedimentary rocks contain the most important archive of environmental change through Earth history. They record changing climates, the movement of tectonicplates, and the rise and fall of sea level on timescales of a few thousand to billions of years. This fully revised and update edition introduces the reader to sedimentology and stratigraphic principles, and provides tools for the interpretation of sediments and sedimentary rocks. The processes of formation, transport and deposition of sediement are considered and then applied to develop conceptual models for the full range of sedimentary environments, from deserts to deep seas and reefs to rivers.
