Facies Models 4


Facies Models 4 is the essential volume on sedimentary succession interpretation, and is presented in full colour. This is an updated new edition of the original highly popular textbook Facies Models, and incorporates the enormous advances in our understanding of depositional environments since the last edition was issued in 1992. Coverage of this topic is at the advanced undergraduate to graduate-student level, making this book accessible to anyone with an interest in sedimentary environments. (This book also available through CSPG and GSA. Due to shipping costs, US-based and International customers are recommended to consult GSA prior to ordering through GAC:
