Topics in Mineral Sciences Volume 42

Editor: P. Sylvester

The purpose of this course volume is to introduce geologists to modern technologies and techniques for studying the petrography, mineralogy and mineral chemistry of sediments and sedimentary rocks. The approaches provide new insights into paleo depositional environments and drainage systems, diagenetic histories and basin architecture. Minerals are important in this context because they preserve an archive of geological processes or surficial conditions that are often homogenized or disturbed at the scale of bulk samples.
