Spurenfossilien sind im Grenzgebiet von Geologie und Biologie angesiedelt. Die Reaktion der Organismen auf äußere Veränderungen bestimmt ihr Verhalten. Spuren dieses Verhaltens finden sich in fossilen Sedimenten und können somit zur Interpretation der ursprünglichen Umwelt herangezogen werden. Das Buch besteht aus zwei Teilen: Neoichnologie und Palaeoichnologie. Es enthält zahlreiche instruktive Zeichnungen, die speziell für dieses Buch angefertigt wurden. Ein ausführliches Glossary erleichtert den Einstieg in das Gebiet. Das Buch ist gedacht für Studenten und Wissenschaftler der Sedimentologie und Paläontologie.

Rocks exposed across the hundreds of islands that belong to the 800 km long Andaman--Nicobar archipelago provide a condensed window into the active subduction zone that separates the India--Australia plate from the over-riding Burma--Sunda plate. Despite a strategic and seismically active location the Andaman-Nicobar ridge has seen comparatively little research. This Memoir provides the first detailed and comprehensive account of geological mapping and research across the island chain and adjacent ocean basins. Chapters examine models of Cenozoic rifting of the Andaman Sea and the regional tectonic and seismogenic framework. A detailed critical review of the Andaman–Nicobar stratigraphy, supported by new data, includes arc volcanism and a description of Barren Island, India’s only active volcano. Seismic history and hazards and the impacts of the 2004 earthquake and tsunami are also described. The volume ends with an examination of the region’s natural resources and hydrocarbon prospects.

This third volume in the IAS Reprint Series reviews some of the major contributions that have been made over the last twenty years to our understanding of deep water environments. Few groups of rocks have received as much attention in recent years as deep sea sands and yet retained so many unsolved problems - How far and how fast can sediment debris flows travel? Do the many ancient series that have been interpreted as submarine fan deposits bear any resemblance to present day deep sea flows? How valid are the sequences described as coarsening upward or fining upward, and how should they be interpreted? This timely review of contributions made to this area of study since 1970 reflects the heightened interest that has surrounded it. Deep Water Turbidite Systems contains 22 papers (reproduced in full) and 22 abstracts of papers that have appeared in the journal Sedimentology, concerned with the broad spectrum of topics within the field of turbidites and associated deep water systems.

Konzepte und Vorstellungen ändern sich in der Sedimentologie schnell, was bleibt ist die Geländearbeit und die Erhebung von Daten als Basis der Wissenschaft. Dieses Buch ist ein Bestimmungsatlas, der hilft, Sedimentgesteine im Gelände zu erkennen und zu beschreiben. Der Benutzer erfährt, was er im Gelände beobachten und aufzeichnen muss, und wie er die Daten richtig interpretiert. Alle wesentlichen Arten von Sedimentgesteinen werden in über 450 hervorragenden Fotos und erklärenden Zeichnungen dargestellt. Im Einführungskapitel werden die Klassifikationen und die Haupttypen der Sedimentgesteine sowie auch deren wirtschaftliche Bedeutung vorgestellt. Der Autor beschreibt dann die wichtigsten Geländemethoden und die grundsätzlichen Eigenschaften von Sedimentgesteinen. Jedem Haupttyp von Sedimentgesteinen entspricht ein Kapitel. Der Interpretation von Fazies und Ablagerungsbedingungen ist im letzten Kapitel breiter Raum gewidmet. Das Buch ist ein unentbehrliches Hilfsmittel für Studenten der Geowissenschaften, Geologen im Beruf sowie für Amateure.

Sedimentary Environments is one of the most distinguished and influential textbooks in the earth sciences published in the last 20 years. The first and second editions both won universal praise and became classic works in sedimentology. Since the publication of the last edition, the study of sedimentary environments and facies has made great strides, with major advances in facies modelling, sequence stratigraphy and basin modelling. The 3rd edition of this classic text will likely set the benchmark even higher, and needless to say, will continue being the textbook of choice for sedimentology students. The latest edition of a classic text. Incorporates all the latest advances in dynamic stratigraphy. Will remain the textbook of choice for upper level undergraduate and graduate students in sedimentology.
