This completely revised and enlarged second edition provides an up-to-date overview of all major topics in sedimentary geology. It is unique in its quantitative approach to denudation-accumulation systems and basin fillings, including dynamic aspects. The relationship between tectonism and basin evolution as well as the concepts of sequence cycle and event stratigraphy in various depositional environments are extensively discussed. Numerous, often composite figures, a well-structured text, brief summaries in boxes, and several examples from all continents make the book an invaluable source of information for students, researchers and professors in academia as well as for professionals in the oil industry.Neogene marine pull-apart basins on land and offshore southern California in the California borderland have been ... The locus of maximum subsidence and the basin center migrated with time; the sedimentation rate reached values up to 350 m/Ma. ... of 200 m thickness (sediment compaction neglected). d Simplified plan view and block diagram of gulf-type pull-apart basins in stage of early drifting.
