Rock-forming minerals are then treated systematically, concentrating first on silicates followed by the most important non-silicate minerals. The three main groups of rocks are then considered: igneous (plutonic and volcanic), sedimentary and metamorphic. The text is well illustrated with 16 photographs of minerals and a total of 89 figures.

Sandstones contain many kinds of sedimentary textures and structures that have potential environmental significance, as discussed in the preceding two chapters. Particle composition is also an important aspect of these rocks; it is a fundamental physical property of sandstones and is the chief property used in their classification. In Earth Materials: Introduction to Mineralogy and Petrology by Cornelis Klein and Anthony Philpotts, minerals and rocks are presented in the context of their geologic setting. This organization and the many field, hand sample, and thin sections photos (in color) make this book interesting and one that students are more inclined to : Jo Laird.

• The chapter on X-ray mineralogy has been rewritten. • A new section on scanning electron microscopy has been added. • A new section on electron microprobe analysis has been added. • The discussion of minerals in igneous rocks has been expanded greatly. • The coverage of nucleation and crystallization has been expanded. • More than 70 revised and new figures are Format: On-line Supplement. Introduction to Mineralogy and Petrology presents the essentials of both disciplines through an approach accessible to industry professionals, academic researchers, and students.. Mineralogy and petrology stand as the backbone of the geosciences. Detailed knowledge of minerals and rocks and the process of formation and association are essential for practicing professionals .

The study of sediments and sedimentary rocks continues to be a core topic in the Earth Sciences and this book aims to provide a concise account of their composition, mineralogy, textures, structures, diagenesis and depositional environments/5(7). This is an excellent book but it does require some background in chemistry and On the mineralogy of sedimentary rocks book was written to be used as a college text book.

It is not a casual read type of book. If you are really into mineralogy and petrology it is a good book to have on hand and spend considerable time studying it. Itis a different approach to Minerology and a welcome by: Abstract. Study of igneous petrology is a basic necessity to geological sciences.

Igneous rocks—intrusive (plutonic) and extrusive (volcanic)—are natural products of crystallization, cooling and solidification of magma originated from the deepest parts of the Earth and represent the original source for sedimentary and metamorphic counter components.

The most important rock-forming minerals are then dealt with in a systematic way, followed by the three main rock groups – igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic.

A lecture course in Minerals and Rocks must be accompanied by a parallel sequence of practical classes where, for example, crystal structures, minerals and rock types dealt with in /5(33).

This book presents a translation and update of the classic German textbook of Mineralogy and Petrology that has been published for decades. It provides an introduction to mineralogy, petrology, and geochemistry, discussing the principles of mineralogy, including crystallography, chemical bonding, and physical properties, and the genesis of minerals in a didactic and.

The earlier editions of this book have been used by successive generations of students for more than 20 years, and it is the standard text on the subject in most British universities and many others throughout the world.

Tucker. In the 75 years of the existence of this book the content and boundaries of sedimentary petrology have increased enormously. 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 countless sedimentologists, aided by a veritable armoury of sophisticated techniques.

Sedimentary rocks are types of rock that are formed by the accumulation or deposition of small particles and subsequent cementation of mineral or organic particles on the floor of oceans or other bodies of water at the Earth's surface.

Sedimentation is the collective name for processes that cause these particles to settle in place. The particles that form a sedimentary rock are.

It covers the mineralogy, chemistry, textures, and sedimentary structures that characterise sedimentary rocks, and relates these features to the depositional origin of the rocks and their subsequent.

Sediment and Sedimentary Rocks Sedimentary Rocks Rivers, oceans, winds, and rain runoff all have the ability to carry the particles washed off of eroding rocks.

Such material, called detritus, consists of fragments of rocks and minerals. When the energy of the transporting current is not strong enough to carry these particles, the.sedimentary petrology are rare. This text book on sedimentary petrology is therefore welcome, even though it is the second edition of an earlier version.
