Sedimentary petrology is the study of their occurrence, composition, texture, and other overall characteristics, while sedimentology emphasizes the processes by which sediments are transported and deposited sedimentary petrography involves the classification and study of sedimentary rocks using the petrographic microscope.
Sedimentary petrology the field of sedimentary petrology is concerned with the description and classification of sedimentary rocks, interpretation of the processes of transportation and deposition of the sedimentary materials forming the rocks, the environment that prevailed at the time the sediments were deposited, and the alteration (compaction, cementation, and chemical and mineralogical modification) of the sediments after deposition. Sedimentary geology is a journal that rapidly publishes high quality, original research papers that cover all aspects of sediments and sedimentary rocks at all spatial and temporal scales submitted papers must place the research in a broad context so that it is of interest to the diverse, international readership of the journal. Engineering uses of sedimentary rocks: the strength of sedimentary rocks depends on the strength of its grains or sediments (constituting the rocks) and cementing material thus, the selection of a sedimentary rock for any building or project should be done carefully based on the strength, colour and appearance of its grains as well as the.
