The sedimentary record on Earth stretches back more than 4.3billion years and is present in more abbreviated forms on companionplanets of the Solar System, like Mars and Venus, and doubtlesselsewhere.

The author addresses the principles of the subject from theviewpoint of modern processes, emphasising a general sciencenarrative approach in the main text, with quantitative backgroundderived in enabling cookie appendices. The book endswith an innovative chapter dealing with how sedimentology iscurrently informing a variety of cognate disciplines, from thetiming and extent tectonic uplift to variations in palaeoclimate.Each chapter concludes with a detailed guide to key further readingleading to a large bibliography of over 2500 entries.
