GT 4: Geochemistry of Sediments and Sedimentary Rocks: Evolutionary Considerations to Mineral Deposit-Forming Environments
Edited by D. Lentz. Illustrated by B.G. Warner.
Contributors: Scott M. McLennan, Barbara Bock, Sidney R. Hemming, Joel. A. Hurowitz, Steven M. Lev, and Diane K. McDaniel; Ján Veizer; P. Jonathan Patchett; Robert A. Creaser; Philip Fralick; Richard A. Cox; Alex C. Brown; Raymond M. Coveney, Jr; and Jan M. Peter.
This volume includes reviews by some of the leading experts on petrology, geochemical, stable and radiogenic isotopic systematics of sedimentary rocks and related detrital minerals that compliment the reviews of various mineral deposit-hosting sedimentary environments highlighted. The recent geochemical research in sedimentary systems has resulted in an explosion of technical information that is helpful in dissecting the origin of mineral deposits formed in sedimentary systems.
These exciting developments are leading to more holistic genetic interpretations of these sedimentary environments and the deposits formed within them; much of this detailed information is summarized within this volume and represents a state-of-the-art snapshot of the field.
