New case studies have been added where appropriate.;The book features: an account of the methods used to determine depositional environments of sedimentary rocks and their economic potential; case histories for all the major environments; and integration of classic sedimentology with the new concepts of seismic sequence stratigraphy and borehole imaging techniques;This work aims to be a useful reading for advanced undergraduates in earth sciences, as well as for sedimentology postgraduates and professional geologists working in the oil industry and related fields.
