Sedimentary Structures

Third Edition

By John Collinson, Nigel Mountney, David Thompson

Sedimentary structures introduces undergraduate students to depositional and also post-depositional sedimentary processes in an structures across a wide range of scales can be interpreted in terms of those processes. Sedimentary structures produced by erosion, deposition and post-depositional change are all clearly explained and related to the processes that formed them. Hydrodynamic and aerodynamic controls on the development of sub-aqueous and aeolian bedforms are discussed, as are the styles of deformation to which sediments can be subjected after deposition.
