Petrology of Sedimentary Rocks [Sam Boggs Jr]

About this book

Petrology of Sedimentary Rocks is an advanced textbook describing the physical, chemical, and biologic properties of the major types of sedimentary rocks, as revealed by petrographic microscopy, geochemical techniques, and field study. It covers the mineralogy, chemistry, textures, and sedimentary structures that characterise sedimentary rocks, and relates these features to the depositional origin of the rocks and their subsequent alteration by diagenetic processes during burial. In addition to detailed sections on siliciclastic rocks (sandstones, shales, conglomerates) and carbonate rocks (limestones and dolomites), it also discusses evaporites, cherts, iron-rich sedimentary rocks, phosphorites, and carbonaceous sedimentary rocks such as oil shales.
