Environmental Sedimentology by Chris Perry,Kevin Taylor

By Chris Perry,Kevin Taylor

Environmental Sedimentology offers a complete advent to this quickly increasing box which addresses the functioning and dynamics of latest sediment structures and the way those platforms reply to a number either traditional and anthropogenically-induced disturbance occasions.

  • considers various sedimentary environments; mountain and upland, fluvial, lacustrine, arid, city, deltaic and estuarine, temperate coastal, tropical coastal, and continental shelf
  • aspects of sediment administration and remediation also are regarded as are the aptitude affects of on-going and destiny climatic and environmental change
  • Readership: complex point undergraduates in earth technological know-how, environmental technological know-how and actual geography, and graduate scholars within the earth and environmental sciences with an curiosity in modern sediment systems
