"Altogether an enjoyable read. I would recommend Gary Nichols' book to anyone who intends to spend the rest of their life contemplating rocks, at whatever level. £26.50 is a reasonable price to pay for a concise and uncluttered companion to future studies." Anne Morton, The OUGS Journal, Symposium Edition 2001
"...this book caught my attention with its fine photographs and discussions of sedimentary rocks...Nichols has written a pleasurable book..." Journal of Sedimentary Research
Sedimentology and Stratigraphy is one of the first introductory texts to relate sedimentological units to the larger stratigraphic picture. The author considers the Earth in terms of its physical environments, to describe the processes which affect generation, transport and deposition of sediment, and to build up a picture of the stratigraphy generated by these processes.
