Contents
  • 7. Sandstone: Properties and classification of sandstones; orthoquartzites; graywackes; subgraywacke and protoquartzite (lithic sandstones); arkose and subarkose (feldspathic sandstones); tuffs and tuffaceous sandstones
  • 8. Shales, Argillites, and Siltstones: Introduction; definitions and terminology; composition of shales and argillites; textures and structures; classification and origin of shales; siltstones
  • 9. Limestones and Dolomites: Introduction; composition; textures and structures; classification; autochthonous (accretionary and biochemical) limestones; detrital (allochthonous) limestones; miscellaneous chemical limestones; diagenesis of limestones; dolomite
  • 10. Nonclastic Sediments (Excluding Limestones): Introduction; chert and other siliceous sediments; iron-bearing sediments; glauconite; phosphorite and other phosphatic sediments; salines and other evaporites (excluding carbonates); the carbonaceous and related materials
  • 11. Provenance (and Mineral Stability): Introduction; definitions; mobility of the oxides; mineral stability; mineralogical maturity; minerals and source rocks; heavy mineral zones; provenance and texture
  • 12. Dispersal: Introduction; size and dispersion; roundness, sphericity, and dispersion; composition and dispersion; dispersal shadows: sedimentary petrologic provinces and sedimentary facies; paleocurrents and dispersion
  • 13. Depositional Environments: Introduction; environmental parameters; sedimentary basins; sedimentation and tectonics
  • 14. Lithification and Diagenesis: Introduction; cementation and decementation; authigenesis; diagenetic differentiation, diagenetic metasomatism; intrastratal solution; compaction
  • 15. Historical Geology of Sediments: Introduction; chemical evolution of the lutites; evolution of the carbonates; evolution of the sandstones; rate of sedimentation; critique of apparent secular changes
  • Index of Names
  • Editor's Introduction
  • Index of Subjects
  • Preface
  • 1. Introduction: The origin of sediments; the study of sediments; total volume of sediment; relative abundance of the common sediments
  • 2. Textures: Particle size of clastic rocks; shape and roundness; surface textures; fabric and packing; porosity and permeability; textures of nonclastic (chemical) sediments
  • 3. Composition of Sedimentary Rocks: Chemical composition and classification of sedimentary rocks; mineral composition of the sedimentary rocks; the detrital minerals; miscellaneous constituents
  • 4. Structures: Introduction and classification; mechanical ("Primary") structures: bedding; internal structure; bedding-plane irregularities and markings; deformed, disrupted, and destroyed bedding; chemical ("Secondary") structures; organic structures (fossils)
  • 5. Classification and Nomenclature: Objective and principles of rock classification; historical; conclusions
  • 6. Gravels, Conglomerates, and Breccias: General characteristics; provenance of gravels and conglomerates; maturity of gravels and conglomerates; classification of gravels and conglomerates; orthoconglomerates; paraconglomerates (conglomeratic mudstones); intraformational conglomerates and breccias; pyroclastic conglomerates and breccias; cataclastic breccias and conglomerates; pseudoconglomerates
