Sedimentary Geology Prothero Ebooking

Written for a first course in sedimentary geology or sedimentary rocks and stratigraphy (with only an introductory geology/physical geology course as a prerequisite). Each chapter focuses on general principles, without bringing in too much detail too quickly, allowing students to develop a solid base level of understanding core concepts. An accessible title for those covering two principal fields of sedimentary geology—sedimentary petrology (properties of sedimentary rocks, their classification and nomenclature) and stratigraphy (defines and describes natural bodies of rock). • Focus on the Big Picture - Each chapter covers general principles without getting bogged down with excessive details. • Balanced Approach - This book covers two principal fields of sedimentary geology-sedimentary petrology (properties of sedimentary rocks, their classification and nomenclature) and stratigraphy (defines and describes natural bodies of rock). Coverage is deliberately weighted in favor of the varieties of sedimentary rocks such as conglomerate, sandstone, mudrock, limestone, and dolostone.
