This concise volume offers one of the few modern treatments of stratigraphy and sedimentology, featuring the use of the stratigraphic code and an analysis of the history of geology in the development of stratigraphic principles. It covers important processes that form sedimentary rocks, explains the interpretation of rock sequences from outcrop scale to regional stratigraphic packages, and synthesizes rock and sedimentary structure classification schemes. The basic tools for interpreting sedimentary structures are presented using a process approach to physical sedimentology, and reveal stratigraphic relationships not normally found in other texts. The text contains many illustrations, which provide compilations of standard classifications, hydrodynamic principles and processes of sedimentation recast in what aims to be an easily understandable format.
