There are 3 kinds of rock—igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary. Sedimentary rocks shape from the weathering, erosion, transportation and deposition of older rocks. Applied Sedimentology describes the formation, transportation and deposition of sediment, and the post-depositional strategies that vary gentle sediment into sedimentary rock. Sedimentary rocks contain sandstones, limestones and mudstones. all of the world's coal, so much of its water and fossil fuels, and lots of mineral deposits take place in sedimentary rocks. Applied Sedimentology indicates how the learn of sediments aids the exploration for and exploitation of traditional assets, together with water, ores and hydrocarbons.

* thoroughly revised variation; Like its precursor, it describes sediments from sand grains to sedimentary basins; positive aspects up-to date account and critique of series and cyclostratigraphy
* greatly illustrated with pictures and remotely sensed sea mattress photographs describing sedimentary techniques, items and depositional platforms; colour plates illustrate sediment textures, lithologies, pore forms, diagenetic textures, and carbonate and clastic series stratigraphic models
* Emphasises the functions of sedimentology to the exploration for and exploitation of average assets, together with water, ores and hydrocarbons
* wide references and updated bibliography for extra study
