The techniques available for the study of sediments and sedimentary rocks form the focus of this book. While field aspects are included, greater emphasis is placed on the laboratory examination of sediments. Each chapter provides introductory background material and then proceeds to a discussion of technique, the equipment, and its limitations. A concluding section includes examples of how the techniques can be used to solve sedimentological problems.
Techniques in Sedimentology is an unrivalled textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students and of great use to many other geologists.
