Summary

The study of sedimentary basins can help the understanding in basic science of how the Earth's crust developed, as well as offering insights into the influence of environmental and climate change. Sedimentary basins are also of interest due to their importance in the exploration and recover of natural resources including oil & gas, water, and industrial minerals. Written by one of Korea's most respected earth scientists, this book analyzes sedimentary facies, basin evolution, and sequence stratigraphy in order to provide answers to depositional processes and environmental changes through Earth's history, including tectonic events, climate changes, and sea-level fluctuations. This is one of the first books covering the geology of the Korean peninsula. It offers an in-depth exploration of this region, which also allows comparison of sedimentary basins around the world. This is an important book for students, researchers, and professionals working in the geography of East Asia. Provides fundamental information on the geology of East Asia Serves as a guide for integrated sedimentary basin analysis, providing a detailed aid for comparative research Contains over 200 figures to illustrate the analysis
