Environmental Sedimentology By Chris Perry and Kevin Taylor - It will be clearly apparent to students of the earth sciences that a number of environmental issues have gained in importance over the past few years, and that sedimentology has a role to play in informing the debate about their impacts. These issues include recent and future climate change, and a wide range of anthropogenic pressures that influence earth surface systems from a range of physical, chemical and ecological perspectives.
Many sediment systems act as excellent archives of past environmental change, allowing us a window into the recent past, as well as providing tools for monitoring change within active sedimentary environments. These in turn can be used to inform management strategies.
