Clastic sedimentology (sedimentology II)

A.A. 2012-2013

Siliciclastic sedimentary facies of the paralic, shelf, slope and deep-marine environments: 1) paralic Siliciclastic sedimentary facies of the paralic, shelf, slope and deep-marine environments: 1) paralic environments and depositional systems (fan deltas, deltas, strand plains, beaches, chenier plains, tidal plains, barrier island-lagoon systems, estuaries), 2) shelf environments and depositional systems (wave-dominated, tide-dominated, ocean currents dominated, muddy), 3) slope depositional systems (slope deltas, aprons, slope turbidite systems), deep-marine depositional systems (deep-water fans, channel-lobe systems, basin plains), 4) transgressive-regressive cycles, sequential arrangement of depositional systems.
