    Special Issue on Sedimentology and Stratigraphy


    Sedimentology studies sand, mud (or silt) and clay, and the various ways they are deposited. Using these studies, sedimentologists apply their understanding of modern processes to ancient rock, to try to understand how it formed. Sedimentology is tied to stratigraphy, which studies the relationships between rock layers and how they can shift and move. This also affects where petroleum deposits can be found, as well as how the extraction of petroleum affects the sediment around the deposit.The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in the area of sedimentology and stratigraphy.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring sedimentology and stratigraphy. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Sedimentary rock types
    • Importance of sedimentary rocks
    • Basic principles
    • Mapping the distribution of the rock unit
    • Petrology and petrography
    • Sedimentary geology
    • Sedimentary geochemistry


    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue - Sedimentology and Stratigraphy” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
