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
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. It focuses on the preserved, ancient depositional record and emphasizes large-scale (basin-scale) depositional processes. Tectonic and climatic controls of fluvial sedimentation and the effects of base-level change on sequence architecture are discussed. Profusely illustrated and with an extensive reference to the recent literature, this book will be welcomed by the student and professional geologist alike.
