There are 3 varieties of rock—igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary. Sedimentary rocks shape from the weathering, erosion, transportation and deposition of older rocks. Applied Sedimentology describes the formation, transportation and deposition of sediment, and the post-depositional procedures that fluctuate tender sediment into sedimentary rock. Sedimentary rocks contain sandstones, limestones and mudstones. all of the world's coal, so much of its water and fossil fuels, and lots of mineral deposits happen in sedimentary rocks. Applied Sedimentology exhibits how the examine of sediments aids the exploration for and exploitation of traditional assets, together with water, ores and hydrocarbons.

* thoroughly revised variation; Like its precursor, it describes sediments from sand grains to sedimentary basins; positive aspects up-to date account and critique of series and cyclostratigraphy
* widely illustrated with images and remotely sensed sea mattress pictures describing sedimentary procedures, items and depositional platforms; colour plates illustrate sediment textures, lithologies, pore kinds, diagenetic textures, and carbonate and clastic series stratigraphic models
* Emphasises the functions of sedimentology to the exploration for and exploitation of common assets, together with water, ores and hydrocarbons
* wide references and up to date bibliography for extra study
