  • Description
  • Contents

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.
