Sediment Provenance: Influences on Compositional Change from Source to Sink by Rajat Mazumder

Sediment Provenance: Influences on Compositional Change from Source to Sink provides a thorough and inclusive overview that features data-based case studies on a broad range of dynamic aspects in sedimentary rock structure and deposition. Provenance data plays a critical role in a number of aspects of sedimentary rocks, including the assessment of palaeogeographic reconstructions, the constraints of lateral displacements in orogens, the characterization of crust which is no longer exposed, the mapping of depositional systems, sub-surface correlation, and in predicting reservoir quality.

The provenance of fine-grained sediments-on a global scale-has been used to monitor crustal evolution, and sediment transport is paramount in considering restoration techniques for both watershed and river restoration. Transport is responsible for erosion, bank undercutting, sandbar formation, aggradation, gullying, and plugging, as well as bed form migration and generation of primary sedimentary structures.

Additionally, the quest for reservoir quality in contemporary hydrocarbon exploration and extraction necessitates a deliberate focus on diagenesis. This book addresses all of these challenges and arms geoscientists with an all-in-one reference to sedimentary rocks, from source to deposition.

  • Provides the latest data available on various aspects of sedimentary rocks from their source to deposition
  • Features case studies throughout that illustrate new data and critical analyses of published data by some of the world's most pre-eminent sedimentologists
  • Includes more than 150 illustrations, photos, figures, and diagrams that underscore key concepts
