Sedimentary Processes, Environments and Basins free pdf For several decades Peter Friend has been one of the leading figures in sedimentary geology and throughout that time he has helped scores of other people by supervising doctoral students, collaborating with colleagues, especially in developing countries, and selflessly sharing ideas with fellow geologists. This collection of papers is a survey of the research frontier in basin dynamics, a field Peter Friend helped initiate, and a token of thanks from people who have benefited from an association with Peter during their careers. The papers in this book fall into four themes - Tectonics and sedimentation, Landscape evolution and provenance, Depositional systems and Fluvial sedimentation - which reflect Peter's research interests and are all important areas of current research in sedimentary geology. There are both case studies and review articles on these themes which reflect recent work, but the collection can also be considered to be a 'sampler' of sedimentary geology for anyone with broad interests in the Earth sciences.

About Gary Nichols

Gary Nichols began his research career as a student of Peter Friend working on fluvial deposits in Spain, and has continued to work in clastic sedimentology in Europe, the Arctic and Antarctic, SE Asia and the Middle East. He teaches sedimentology and stratigraphy at Royal Holloway, University of London. Edward Williams conducted research at University College, Cork on Devonian Old Red Sandstone fluviatile rocks in SW Ireland, and has carried out further work on various continental facies and other rocks in the Spanish Pyrenees, western Alps and the Gulf of Corinth. He is currently Managing Editor of the journal 'Geostandards and Geoanalytical Research'. Chris Paola is based at the University of Minnesota, USA, and does research in quantitative clastic sedimentology and stratigraphy, emphasising fluvial systems. His approach combines experimentation, theoretical analysis, and field work. Peter Friend served as External Examiner for his MSc thesis at the University of Reading.
