Okay, the other process then is "cementation." "Cementation" basically is the process by which the existing grains of sediment are glued together by the precipitation of minerals in those pore spaces at the edges if you like or clastic grains. Sharp-peaked curves are said to be leptokurtic; flat-peaked curves are platykurtic. The further away you get from the front of the mountain range, the finer the grain is the sediment being carried. Clastic sedimentary rocks are made of pieces of rock or mineral grains that have been broken from preexisting rock.

The three weathering products described by the simple ideal model (Figure 2) do not remain in a heterogeneous mix at their source; rather, they are transported down system (from land to the sea) and separated from each other through a process called sorting online.

Clearly, all cements in deep-water carbonates such as chalks that were never exposed to meteoric waters must be of deepburial origin. A growing body of evidence obtained by petrographic, cathodoluminescence, stable-isotope, and fluid-inclusion study suggests that much of the cement in ancient peritidal, shallow-marine, and platform-margin limestone may also have formed during deep-burial diagenesis Ichnoentomology: Insect Traces download for free read online Ichnoentomology: Insect Traces in Soils and Paleosols (Topics in Geobiology).

Few lithic arenites are composed predominantly of well-rounded grains. Chemical composition The chemical composition of lithic arenites is quite variable, and the composition of some lithic arenites is very similar to that of some feldspathic arenites.

See http://www.geo.duke.edu/ss/ss007.gif photo shows large scale tabular cross bedding.

Facies zone 10 – limestones in subaerial or subaquatic settings that have been affected by meteoric waters under meteoric–vadose and marine–vadose conditions Note from Fig. 9.40 that each facies zone is characterized by a few standard microfacies types; however a particular standard microfacies type can appear in more than one facies zone Sedimentary Cover of the Craton in Canada: Geology of Canada: No.5-Text & Plates (Geology of North America) Sedimentary Cover of the Craton in Canada: Geology of Canada: No.5-Text & Plates (Geology of North America) pdf, azw (kindle), epub. Numerous inorganic processes have also been postulated, including slumping, dewatering and collapse, dynamic metamorphism, recrystallization of carbonate mud, pressure solution, and submarine crust formation. On the basis of studies of limestones in eastern Victoria, Australia, Wallace (1987) proposes that the structures he studied formed by a process of internal erosion and sedimentation 360 Limestones Figure 9.33 Photomicrograph of birdseye structure in a micritic limestone ref.: Metalliferous Sediments of the read online read Metalliferous Sediments of the World Ocean: Fundamental Theory of Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Sedimentation for free.

In conclusion, Nely (1994) said that a good knowledge of evaporite accumulations is very useful in petroleum exploration.

Fossils can give information on the age of the sedimentary rock they were formed in and the ambient conditions under which the rock was formed e.g. was it formed under water with 'tell-tail' fossil fish, shells. Even ripples in the water from rivers or seas can be detected if the sand becomes covered with other material and then the layers harden read Sandstone Landforms pdf, azw (kindle).

Many thanks to Jim Thompson for permission to display these lyric excerpts. Sedimentary rocks are those formed from the compaction and cementation of fragments of pre-existing rocks called clasts, or plant and animals remains. The exogenic processes of weathering and erosion create the raw materials for sedimentary rocks. Earth material is loosened and moved from higher to lower elevations where it is deposited as transportation agents like water, wind or gravity lose their energy to move sediment pdf. Reproduced by permission.) 16 Origin, classification, and occurrence of sedimentary rocks A close relationship exists between the tectonic setting of the sediment source area(s), the characteristics of the depositional basin, and the kinds of sedimentary rocks that accumulate in the basins. Tectonic setting governs the kinds of source rocks available to furnish sediment to depositional basins and thus the composition of sediments furnished to these basins Proposals for the download online Proposals for the Classification, Description and Mapping of Soils in Urban Areas pdf.
