The completely revised and enlarged second edition of this book provides an up-to-date overview of all major topics in sedimentary geology. It is unique in its quantitative approach to denudation-accumulation systems and basin fillings, including dynamic aspects. The relationship between tectonism and basin evolution as well as the concepts of sequence cycle and event stratigraphy in various depositional environments are extensively discussed. Due to rapid progress in the past decade in the fields of sediment budget as well as sequence, cycle and event stratigraphy, a complete revision of…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
The completely revised and enlarged second edition of this book provides an up-to-date overview of all major topics in sedimentary geology. It is unique in its quantitative approach to denudation-accumulation systems and basin fillings, including dynamic aspects. The relationship between tectonism and basin evolution as well as the concepts of sequence cycle and event stratigraphy in various depositional environments are extensively discussed. Due to rapid progress in the past decade in the fields of sediment budget as well as sequence, cycle and event stratigraphy, a complete revision of Chapters 7, 9 and 11 was necessary. Numerous, often composite figures, a well-structured text, brief summaries in boxes, and several examples from all continents make the book an invaluable source of information for students, researchers and professors in academia as well as for professionals in the oil industry.

Rezensionen
From the reviews: "...The book is so packed with readable information that it is impossible to do justice to the detail in a short review. Intended for advanced students and professionals, it provides a valuable up-to-date general account..." (ESRISAT)
"...This one-author-publication covers the subject in full although it contains an enormous amount of detailed information...The book is enriched by 269 figures, standardized in style and very readable with informative keys...A classic in its field, rooting in the famous school of geology of Georg Wagner at Tübingen, Germany..."
