This booklet supports a short course in carbonate sedimentology. It is meant as a teaching aid, not a replacement of the course. Anybody using it for self-study should be prepared to occasionally consult an introductory textbook, such as F?chtbauer & Richter (1988), Jones & Desrochers (1992), Tucker & Wright (1990), or Wright & Burchette (1996).
The course is meant as an introduction to the study of carbonate rocks on the scale of outcrops to the scale of sedimentary basins. The large-scale anatomy of the rocks and the broad facies pattes are the leitmotif. The anatomy-approach is a logical first step if one is headed for the seismic interpretation of carbonate rocks. In fact, much of what has been selected for the course could also be included in a course on seismic sedimentology. However, it seems to me that the large-scale anatomy is also the favorite perspective of most field geologists in mountain belts. For them, outcrops replace seismic lines and palinspastic reconstructions rather than reservoir predictions may be the key task but their approach is in many ways akin to that of the basin analyst.

Elsevier, 2006, p. 375 Sequence stratigraphy analyzes the sedimentary response to changes in base level, and the depositional trends that emerge from the interplay of accommodation (space available for sediments to fill) and sedimentation. Sequence stratigraphy has tremendous potential to decipher the Earth’s geological record of local to global changes, and to improve the predictive aspect of economic exploration and production. For these reaso...

Put in a nutshell, sedimentology searches for the common traits of sedimentary rocks regardless of age as it reconstructs environments and processes of deposition and erosion from the sediment record. Stratigraphy, by contrast, concentrates on changes with time, on...

Sedimentary rocks form from the weathering, erosion, transportation and deposition of older rocks. Applied Sedimentology describes the formation, transportation and deposition of sediment, and the post-depositional processes that change soft sediment into sedimentary rock. Sedimentary rocks include sandstones, limest...
