The Field Guides are pocket-size volumes containing practical field information for individuals and groups visiting areas in the World that provide excellent examples of sedimentary strata. They are essential for new visitors to classical areas of sedimentological significance.
The guides are written to appeal to all levels, from keen amateurs, through undergraduate students, to academics and other professional earth scientists. Individual localities and the features that they demonstrate are clearly described. Emphasis is placed on the field aspects of sedimentology, including geomorphology, clastic and carbonate facies, cycles and sequences, and sedimentation, tectonics and basin development. Other related aspects of the regional geology such as basement history and mineral deposits are also covered.
