A COLOUR ATLAS OF CARBONATE SEDIMENTS AND ROCKS UNDER A MICROSCOPE

  
By A.E. Adams and W.S. MacKenzie

  

(Softback)

(Second hand copy in 'as new' condition)

   

More than half of the world's petroleum is to be found in carbonate rocks. These rocks show a bewildering diversity of grains and textures. Careful petrographic study with a polarising microscope is a key element of any study of carbonate sediments.

  

This atlas illustrates in full colour a range of features not attempted in any general textbook. It is designed as a laboratory manual to keep beside the microscope, as an aid to identifying grain types and textures in carbonates. It appeals alike to undergraduate and graduate students and to professionals in teaching institutions, research laboratories and industry.

    

Softback. 180 pages. Published by Manson Publishing. First edition. 1998. Colour photographs throughout. Excellent condition.
