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 ho 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 " 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 sedimentary rocks for fossil fuels and mineral deposits.
