We wrote Sedimentology of Shale essentially simply because we lacked a convenient, kind of accomplished resource of data and concepts approximately shales for college kids in our sedimentology application. It was once additionally our feeling that the time for shales to obtain extra research had ultimately arrived. Sedimentology of Shale additionally turns out very well timed simply because at the present time extra sedimentologists have an interest in shales. definitely within the final 5 years the velocity of shale study has no­ ticeably quickened as the position of shales as vital resources of oil, fuel, heavy metals and as an extended understudied a part of the earth's geologic his­ tory has been famous. Noteworthy advancements contain the elucida­ tion of the significance of hint fossils in shales, the invention of thick sequences of overpressured shales in areas resembling the Gulf Coast (which have very important implications for hydrocarbon migration and faulting), the ex­ rigidity of the rules of metamorphic facies to the area of low tempera­ ture diagenesis through research of the natural topic in shales, and shales as ul­ timate resources for mineral deposits. for this reason, we made up our minds it used to be well timed to put in writing a ebook on shales. in a single admire, besides the fact that, ours is an strange e-book. such a lot books in geology are produced after one or twenty years of development were made in a box and try to summarize and overview that progress.
