Andrew Miall – Fluvial Depositional Systems
Published: 2013-09-03 | ISBN: 3319006657 | PDF | 290 pages | 27 MB

 

This book is intended to complement the author’s 1996 book “The geology of fluvial deposits”, not to replace it.
The book summarizes methods of mapping and interpretation of fluvial depositional systems, with a detailed treatment of the tectonic, climatic and eustatic controls on fluvial depositional processes. It focuses on the preserved, ancient depositional record and emphasizes large-scale (basin-scale) depositional processes. Tectonic and climatic controls of fluvial sedimentation and the effects of base-level change on sequence architecture are discussed. Profusely illustrated and with an extensive reference to the recent literature, this book will be welcomed by the student and professional geologist alike.
