Springer-Verlag, 1992, p. 628This book addresses both qualitative and quantitative aspects of basin analysis, including topics such as various flux rates, diagenesis, and fluid flow, in the context of plate tectonics and sedimentary geology. Tectonic subsidence and uplift are prerequisites for basin formation and terrigenous sediment supply, but sedimentary processes in a basin are governed by other factors, including water circulation and recycling of nutrients, sediment transport, deposition, and redistribution. The sedimentary facies of a basin are largely controlled by the interrelationship between subsidence, sedimentation rate, and relative sea level change. Basinal sediment budgets are a topic which has been rarely treated in textbooks. Large-scale processes, facies associations, and especially sedimentary sequences are stressed in the book, rather than small-scale sedimentary structures, texture, petrographic characteristics, or detailed descriptions of biogenic sediment components and trace fossils. The latter phenomena are sufficiently described in a number of modern books. Finally, brief sections address the application of basic knowledge to exploration for hydrocarbons, coal, minerals, and deep groundwater. This book is written for advanced students and professionals who require a comparatively straightforward, elementary treatment of sedimentary basin processes and evolution. The reader should already be familiar with general geology and geologic principles and have some basic knowledge of sedimentology. Quantitative aspects are described by simple equations and idealized examples. The book emphasizes broad, large-scale features of sedimentary basins and their facies associations. It provides only a limited number of case studies, which are chosen mostly from Europe and North America, but from other continents as well. Many experts will probably find that their specific topics are not treated thoroughly enough and that important datails have been omitted. Others may criticize that not all publications relevant to their fields are cited in the reference list. I would be grateful if these colleagues were to inform me when important points are missing or not treated properly.Basin Classification and Depositional Environments Introduction Tectonic Basin Classification Pre-, Syn-, and Post-Depositional Basins Basin Morphology and Depositional Environments Continental Sediments Glacial Deposits of Lowlands and Shallow Seas Fluvial Sediments, Alluvial Fans, and Fan Deltas Eolian Sediments Volcaniclastic Sediments (Tephra Deposits) Lake Sediments Coastal and Shallow Sea Sediments (Including Carbonates) Beach and Shoreface Sediments Sediments of Tidal Flats and Barrier-Island Complexes Sediments of Shallow Seas (Including Carbonates) Sediments of Marine Delta Complexes Sediments of Adjacent Seas and Estuaries Introduction Water Circulation and Sediments Sedimentary History of Some Modern Adjacent Seas Oceanic Sediments General Aspects Water Circulation in the Oceans Hemipelagic and Pelagic Deep-sea Sediments Gravity Mass Flow Deposits and Turbidites Erosion and Reworking of Deep-sea Sediments Special Depositional Environments and Sediments Green Marine Clays Oolitic Ironstones Red Beds Marine Evaporites Nonactualistic (Precambrian) Depositional Environments Depositional Rhythms and Cyclic Sequences General Aspects Special Features and Examples of Rhythmic Bedding Depositional Cycles in Lakes.

As this book is intended for engineering students in geology and geophysics, drillers, producers, and economists, it voluntarily leaves out certain aspects of geology such as mineralogy, the geology of crystalline basements, and metamorphism. It essentially deals with sedimentary geology and was designed as a teaching support with an...

This book emphasizes the properties of sedimentary rocks rather than sedimentary processes. Thus, it focuses on description and discussion of mineralogic and chemical composition, as well as the textures and sedimentary structures that characterize sedimentary rocks. Further, it discusses...

The main purpose of this book remains the same as it was for the first edition, that is, to situate sequences within the broader context of geological processes, and to answer the question: why do sequences form? Geoscientists might thereby be better equipped to extract the maximum information from the record of sequences in a given basin or...

More than 75% of the earth's land surface is covered by sediments and sedimentary rocks. Near-surface sediments constitute the reservoirs for almost all groundwater, and are vitally important substrates for soils, wetlands, and shallow marine environments, while more deeply buried sediments provide most of the world's reserves of fossil fuels. The...

This book has been written for students who are studying geology at university and it is intended to provide them with an introduction to sedimentology and stratigraphy. It is hoped that the text is accessible to those who are completely new to the subject and that it will also...

Applied Sedimentology is divided into three parts: Rock to Sediment, Sediment Sedimented, and Sediment to Rock, reflecting the holistic nature of the sedimentary cycle. An introductory chapter outlines the field of sedimentology, relates it to the fundamental sciences, and discusses its applications.
