Terrestrial Depositional Systems : Deciphering Complexities Through Multiple Stratigraphic Methods
about this item
Terrestrial Depositional Systems: Deciphering Complexities through Multiple Stratigraphic Methods is the first collection of contributed articles that introduces young geoscientists to stratigraphy, chemostratigraphy, magnetostratigraphy, and lithostratigraphy while providing seasoned practitioners with a standard reference that showcases the topic’s most recent developments in research and application.
When studying complex depositional systems, scientists often need to rely on more than one stratigraphic technique to truly understand the sequence of historical events. Through a blend of specific analytical techniques, experiments, sampling methods, and working examples, this book provides a practical reference for addressing a range of depositional system challenges.
A multi-contributed reference that combines reviews of stratigraphic methods with individual case studies, readers will be able to apply a broad scope of techniques that aid in the interpretation and understanding of complex depositional systems.
- Offers multi-contributed expertise in stratigraphy, chemostratigraphy, magnetostratigraphy, and lithostratigraphy, ensuring thorough topical coverage
- Features case studies in each chapter that underscore the range of applications of individual stratigraphic methods
- Provides detailed explanations of different analyses, data collection methods, and sampling techniques, making the content immediately implementable
- More than 100 illustrations, figures, and photographs provide visual representation of core concepts
