The Sedimentary Record


Book Reviews

Reviews of Books about Sedimentary Geology
Beginning in 2011, book reviews for topics on sedimentary geology will be listed in the quarterly Sedimentary Record and the full review will appear online here under the Sedimentary Record menu.  Prior to 2011, Book Reviews can be found under JSR webpages and reviews on paleontological topics can found under PALAIOS webpages. Paleontological book reviews will continue to be handled by PALAIOS editors.  See the bottom of the page to submit a book for review.
