Careful petrographic study with a polarising microscope is a key element of any study of carbonate sediments, as a companion to field or core logging, and as a necessary precursor to geochemical analysis. This atlas, which illustrates in full colour a range of features not attempted in any general textbook, is designed as a laboratory manual to keep beside the microscope, as an aid to identifying grain types and textures in carbonates. It appeals alike to undergraduate and graduate students and to professionals in teaching institutions, research laboratories and industry.

The quality of colour illustrations is of the highest standard. The images are sharp, and the colour reproduction is excellent
...it behooves even the veteran petrologist to have access to this new publication by Adams and MacKenzie.
An immensely useful book. It is the next best thing to being lead through a collection of slides by an experienced tutor... It will appeal to geologists at every level...Unlike many books written to be kept by the microscope, it opens flat.
