More than half of the world's petroleum is to be found in carbonate rocks, for example in the Middle East, the former USSR and in North America. These rocks show a bewildering diversity of grains and textures, due in part to the wealth of different fossil organisms which have contributed to carbonate sedimentation, and in part to a wide variety of diagenetic processes which can radically modify textures and obscure the depositional fabric.

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The quality of colour illustrations is of the highest standard. The images are sharp, and the colour reproduction is excellent
-Min Mag

...it behooves even the veteran petrologist to have access to this new publication by Adams and MacKenzie.
-American Mineralogist

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.
