Sedimentary Environments is one of the most distinguished and influential textbooks in the earth sciences published in the last 20 years. The first and second editions both won universal praise and became classic works in sedimentology. Since the publication of the last edition, the study of sedimentary environments and facies has made great strides, with major advances in facies modelling, sequence stratigraphy and basin modelling. The 3rd edition of this classic text will likely set the benchmark even higher, and needless to say, will continue being the textbook of choice for sedimentology students.

  • The latest edition of a classic text.
  • Incorporates all the latest advances in dynamic stratigraphy.
  • Will remain the textbook of choice for upper level undergraduate and graduate students in sedimentology.

Industry Reviews
