This subject addresses the formation of sediments and sedimentary rocks and the processes involved in sedimentary transport, deposition and post- depositional changes. The subject takes a process and product approach and examines a wide variety of terrestrial and marine sedimentary environments, both modern and ancient. Students will be exposed to representative sediments and rocks from these depositional environments as well as a wide range of field and laboratory techniques for their analysis and interpretation. This subject provides and important foundation in Earth surface processes and the sedimentary rock record for all earth science and non-earth science students.
