9780470689165: Sedimentary Rocks in the Field: A Practical Guide

This fourth edition builds on the success of previous editions and for the first time is produced in full colour throughout with improved photos and diagrams. It retains its popular pocket size and is an essential buy for all students working in the field.

The text shows how sedimentary rocks are tackled in the field and has been written for all those with a geological background. It describes how the features of sedimentary rocks can be recorded in the field particularly through the construction of graphic logs. In succeeding chapters the various sedimentary rock types, textures and structures are discussed and shown how they can be described and measured in the field. There are expanded sections on trace fossils and volcaniclastics along with updated reference list. Finally a concluding section deals briefly with facies identification and points the ways towards facies interpretations, and the identification of sequences and cycles.

Key Features:

  • Full colour throughout with improved photos, figures and diagrams in a modern layout.
  • Complete revision and update of best selling textbook which is part of the highly successful Field Guide series.
  • Expanded sections on trace fossils and volcaniclastics along with updated reference list.

Sedimentary rocks are widely distributed at the Earth's surface and their accurate description is essential for interpretations of depositional environments and palaeo-geography. Designed to be used in the field, this book describes both techniques and approaches and discusses particular aspects including composition, texture, sedimentary structures and fossils. Explanations are aided by the inclusion of detailed illustrations.

From the Back Cover:

A large proportion of fieldwork involving the study of sedimentary rocks is unsupervised. This handy pocket-sized book has been written especially for use in the field. It describes how successful fieldwork can be accomplished, with particular emphasis on the precision and accuracy of recording detail. The basic

  • keeps the handy pocket size for use in the field
  • has been completely revised and updated
  • has a new modern layout and improved illustrations
  • includes new sections on safety in the field, the use of GPS in sedimentary studies, core description, fossils as depth indicators and facies models

Sedimentary Rocks in the Field 3rd Edition discusses the various sedimentary rock-types, textures and structures as they can be recorded in the field. A chapter on fossils is included since these are important components of sedimentary rocks and can provide useful information. The concluding section deals briefly with facies identification and points the way towards facies interpretations and the identification of sequences and cycles.

This book will be of use to 2nd/3rd year undergraduates in areas of sedimentology, stratigraphy, field mapping and training. It is an ideal supplementary text for professional geologists, physical geographers, engineering geologists and civil engineers.
