Principles of Sedimentation By William a. Szary Cover Image


Principles of Sedimentation provides the most basic information beginning the process of guiding those interested in geological processes into studying sedimentary rock interpretation. The objective is to provide enough basic information to hold enough interest to pursue the study of sedimentology in greater detail as a step towards applying scientific principles and techniques in interpreting geological events. Chapter 1 provides an introduction to historical geology focusing on the Paleozoic, Mesozoic, and Cenozoic Erathems. Chapter 2 focuses on sedimentary processes tied to weathering; soil formation; landscapes and the cycle of erosion; glacial impacts; mass wasting and hill slope evolution; river erosion, transport, and deposition; stream hydrology; floodplain morphology; introduction to rocks and rock classification; and, sedimentary transport and deposition. Chapter 3 addresses properties of sedimentary rocks including texture and composition; and, sedimentary structures. Chapter 4 presents various models on sedimentary interpretation focusing on the sedimentary environment; environment classification including continents, transitional, and marine environments. The book contains 117 color photos, references, and an index.
