Sedimentary Petrology- An Introduction to the Origin of Sedimentary Rocks by Tucker,M/5(6). A few special types of sedimentary rocks have significantly more organic material than these average rocks. Black shales and other organic-rich and bituminous mudrocks typically contain 3 to 10 or more percent by weight of organic matter.

Some oil shales contain even higher percentages, ranging to 25 percent or more, Author: Sam Boggs. In Petrology of Sedimentary Rocks, Dr. Sam Boggs wrote what has come to be considered the definitive text on the subject of sedimentary petrology.

It is doubtful if there are any areas of the subject described by the original authors which have remained untouched by the relatively recent onslaught by.

Now in a thoroughly updated new edition (the first since ), Petrology remains the most student-friendly undergraduate level text covering all three major rock groups. As always, the new edition organizes a vast body of literature from its wide-ranging subject, presenting what is essential to geology majors in a way that is accessible and at an appropriate level.5/5(3).

Book Description: This textbook highlights the physical, chemical, and biologic properties of sedimentary rocks, revealed through petrographic microscopy, geochemical techniques, and field study/5(7).

This text, designed for the middle-level undergraduate geology major, incorporates both fundamentals and information on recent advances in our understanding of igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks. It provides an overview of the field of petrology and a solid foundation for more advanced studies.

For each class of rocks -- igneous, sedimentary, and metamorhic -- the author describes. Introduction. Sedimentary rocks form at low temperatures and pressures at the surface of Earth owing to deposition by water, wind, or ice.

By contrast, igneous and metamorphic rocks form mainly below Earth's surface where temperatures and pressures may be orders of magnitude higher than those at the surface, although volcanic rocks eventually cool at the by: 2.

Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.After reading several books on sedimentary petrology, this seems to be far away the best book of my list.

Chapters on diagenesis are just delicious, both of clastic and carbonate rocks. Provenance, textures and structures are complete too, and sistematics are well organiced and complete.

Very recommended, I choose Boggs Jr/5(7).
