Tidalites: Processes & Products
Tidalites: Processes and Products - Tidal processes are important agents of sediment transport and deposition in most marine coastal zones. Recent development of better tools for recognizing tidal deposits (e.g., tidal bundles and tidal rhythmites) has also revealed that such deposits are much more common and extensive than previously thought. This volume presents the latest ideas on tidal sedimentation, including exciting new work concerning the tidal flats of the Wadden Sea, the area where modern-day studies of tidal sedimentation began; the origin, interpretation, and uses of tidal rhythmites; and the sequencestratigraphic context of tidal sediments.
