  • Sandstone Diagenesisby Stuart Burley; Richard Worden

    Wiley 2009; US$ 194.95

    Diagenesis affects all sediments after their deposition and includes a fundamental suite of physical, chemical and biological processes that control the texture, mineralogy and fluid-flow properties of sedimentary rocks. Understanding the processes and products of diagenesis is thus a critical component in the analysis of the evolution of sedimentary... more...

The third edition is re-presented in the... more...

  • Carbonate Sedimentologyby Maurice E. Tucker; V. Paul Wright

    Wiley 2009; US$ 160.00

    Carbonate rocks (limestones and dolomites) constitute a major part of the geological column and contain not only 60% of the world's known hydrocarbons but also host extensive mineral deposits. This book represents the first major review of carbonate sedimentology since the mid 1970's. It is aimed at the advanced undergraduate - postgraduate level and... more...

  • Sedimentary Facies Analysisby A. Guy Plint

    Wiley 2009; US$ 150.00

    This book celebrates the professional career of Harold Reading, who has played a leading role in the development of the IAS, and has been at the roots of the development of 'facies sedimentology' as an art in itself and as a major tool in the broader field of geology. This special collection of original research papers from Harold Reading's students... more...
