Description

This book celebrates the professional career of Harold Reading, who has played a leading role in the development of the IAS, and has been at the roots of the development of 'facies sedimentology' as an art in itself and as a major tool in the broader field of geology. This special collection of original research papers from Harold Reading's students covers the wide range of his research interests and reflects the power of facies sedimentology today.
  • State-of-the-art research papers in the important field of facies sedimentology * a festschrift to one of the great names in sedimentology.
Introduction.
