• Comprehensive yet concise coverage of all aspects of sedimentology and stratigraphy enables students to obtain complete information on both topics without purchasing additional texts.
• Current coverage of important topics and recent findings saves instructors time by eliminating the need for supplementary materials.
• Numerous illustrations, photos, and diagrams throughout the text provide students with visual representation of concepts to help their understanding.
• Extensive references provide students with the most authoritative sources available to conduct in-depth research projects, further investigations, and term papers.
• Additional readings at the end of each chapter encourage students to conduct further investigations outside of the classroom.
• Photomicrographs provide students with essential visual references for understanding the makeup of sedimentary rocks at the microscopic scale.
• New, pertinent references to research papers help keep the book up to date.
• A listing of new books in the field of sedimentology and stratigraphy provides a guide to relevant additional reading.
• New figures better illustrate the topics discussed in the text and represent current research.
• The revised North American Stratigraphic code, published by the North American Stratigraphic Commission in 2005, is included as an appendix.
•A section on "Application of Lithostratigraphy" has been added to Chapter 12.
• A section on "Application of Biostratigraphy" has been added to Chapter 14.
