* 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
