Sediments Close-Up: The Micromorphology and Microsedimentology of Non-Lithified Sediments (Paperback)
Sediments Close-up: The Micromorphology and Microsedimentology of Non-lithified Sediments presents microsedimentology preparation methods, sampling strategies, interpretation, and quantitative methodology, all of which are broken into distinct sections for each stage of the process. The book forms a thorough reference and practical guide to the field from an editorial team with decades of experience and comprehensively details diagnostic techniques to determine depositional environments. The micromorphology and microsedimentology practices covered have become invaluable tools in the study of sediments and, in particular, microstructures within these sediments.
Finally, the book includes detailed case studies to help readers understand and implement the techniques covered. Users will find this to be an in-depth technical reference on microsedimentology for geoscientists, academic supervisors, geoscience conservation officers, geo-engineers, environmental consultants and others in the field of sedimentology.
