SÑ€ringÐµr International Publishing | 2014 | ISBN: 3319006657 9783319006659 9783319006666 | 322 pages | PDF | 27 MB
The book summarizes methods of mapping and interpretation of fluvial depositional systems, with a detailed treatment of the tectonic, climatic and eustatic controls on fluvial depositional processes, and focuses on the preserved, ancient depositional record and emphasizes large-scale (basin-scale) depositional processes. This book will be welcomed by the student and professional geologist alike.
Tectonic and climatic controls of fluvial sedimentation and the effects of base-level change on sequence architecture are discussed.
* Applies modern sequence-stratigraphic methods and concepts to the nonmarine environment
* Demonstrates and explains integrated stratigraphic-sedimentologic methods for analysis and interpretation
* Discusses the information regarding basin-scale tectonic, climatic, eustatic and paleogeographic history that may be derived from the study of the ancient fluvial record
