“A to Z Geology of India (Stratigraphy And Fossils)” Book Review: The book is based on stratigraphy which is the orderly and chronological arrangement of different formations. This book has arranged the different formations of stratigraphy in an alphabetic order. The book can be used in the form of a ready reference for sedimentology students.

5. “Stratigraphy and Paleolimnology of the Green River Formation, Western USA (Syntheses in Limnogeology)” by Michael Elliot Smith and Alan R Carroll

“Stratigraphy and Paleolimnology of the Green River Formation, Western USA (Syntheses in Limnogeology)” Book Review: This book gives details about the stratigraphic and sedimentologic investigations of the Eocene Green River Formation of Wyoming, Colorado and Utah. It is one of the world’s foremost terrestrial archives of lacustrine and alluvial deposition during the warmest portion of the early Cenozoic. The book explains the rich and varied record of lacustrine stratigraphy, sedimentology, geochronology, geochemistry and paleontology. The book gives details about the member-scale synthesis of Green River Formation strata within the Greater Green River, Fossil, Piceance Creek and Uinta Basins. The book also addresses its enigmatic evaporite deposits and ichnofossils at broad, intrabasinal scale. The book can be used by those in the field of sedimentology.

6. “Neogene Micropaleontology and Stratigraphy of Argentina: The Chaco-Paranense Basin and the Península de Valdés (SpringerBriefs in Earth System Sciences)” by Hugo Marengo

advertisement
“Neogene Micropaleontology and Stratigraphy of Argentina: The Chaco-Paranense Basin and the Península de Valdés (SpringerBriefs in Earth System Sciences)” Book Review: This book gives an update about the last two centuries and presents an unprecedented micro paleontological study covering more than 20 stratigraphic sections. Several sedimentological observations and analyses are given. On the basis of this, a new lithostratigraphic framework for the Neogene of the Chacoparanense Basin is proposed. The book is easy to read and offers a detailed review of the current state of knowledge on transgressions in Argentina and South American countries. The book presents the main results on the TLP and TEP of the Chacoparanense Basin and the TEP of the Península de Valdés. The book provides a complete stratigraphic profile, mineralogical analyses, distribution charts, systematics and plates. This book can be used by sedimentology students.

7. “Unlocking the Stratigraphical Record: Advances in Modern Stratigraphy” by Peter Doyle and Matthew R Bennett

“Unlocking the Stratigraphical Record: Advances in Modern Stratigraphy” Book Review: This book discusses the development of new techniques such as sequence stratigraphy, cyclostratigraphy and chemostratigraphy. In this book many of the leading practitioners of modern stratigraphy have been gathered together to provide up-to-date and authoritative reviews of most of the important advances in the subject. This book provides a comprehensive treatment of modern stratigraphy. This book can be used by advanced undergraduate level students.

8. “Application of Geochemical Tracers to Fluvial Sediment (SpringerBriefs in Earth Sciences)” by Jerry R Miller and Gail Mackin

advertisement
“Application of Geochemical Tracers to Fluvial Sediment (SpringerBriefs in Earth Sciences)” Book Review: This book takes an in-depth look at the theory and methods that are a part of tracing riverine sediments. The tracers that have been examined in this book are multi-elemental concentration data, fallout radionuclides (e.g., 210Pb, 137Cs, 7Be), radiogenic isotopes and novel stable isotopes (e.g., Cd, Cu, Hg, and Zn). The book aims to show how tracer/fingerprinting studies can be used to gain insights into system functions that would not otherwise be possible. This book can be used by researchers and catchment managers. It gives a summary of the strengths and limitations of the examined techniques. This is in terms of their temporal and spatial resolution, data requirements, and the uncertainties in the generated results.

9. “Principles of Sequence Stratigraphy (Developments in Sedimentology)” by Octavian Catuneanu

“Principles of Sequence Stratigraphy (Developments in Sedimentology)” Book Review: This book provides an in-depth coverage and impartial assessment of all current ideas and models in the field of sequence stratigraphy. This book develops fundamental concepts of sequence stratigraphy that links base-level changes to sedimentary deposits. This book looks into the differing approaches to how the sequence stratigraphic method can be applied to the rock records. It also reviews practical applications such as how petroleum geologists can target where to drill for oil. The book has an easy approach and helps acquire a common terminology and conceptual understanding. This book offers theoretical guidelines of how the facies and time relationships are expected to be under specific circumstances. This book focuses on a user-friendly and flexible method of analysis of the sedimentary rock record than other current methods. The book has several illustrations of outcrop, core, well log, and 3D seismic data. There is a dedicated chapter on discussions and conclusions, along with an instructor site containing images from the book. This book will help researchers and professionals. It will also help upper graduate and graduate students in stratigraphy, sedimentology, petroleum geology and engineering, economic geology, coal geology, seismic exploration, precambrian geology, and mining geology and engineering.

10. “Stratigraphic Paleobiology – Understanding the Distribution of Fossil Taxa in Time and Space” by Mark Patzkowsky and Steven Holland

advertisement
“Stratigraphic Paleobiology – Understanding the Distribution of Fossil Taxa in Time and Space” Book Review: This book presents a critical framework for assessing the fossil record, one based on a modern understanding of the principles of sediment accumulation. This book argues that the distribution of fossil taxa in time and space is controlled not only by processes of ecology, evolution, and environmental change. The book argues that it is also controlled by the stratigraphic processes that govern where and when sediment that might contain fossils is deposited and preserved. The book explores the exciting possibilities of stratigraphic paleobiology, and demonstrates its great potential to answer some of the most critical questions about the history of life. This book will be of help to researchers and professionals in the field of stratigraphy and sedimentology.
