Tidal Signatures and Their Preservation Potential in Stratigraphic Sequences -- 4. Tidal Ichnology -- 5. Processes, Morphodynamics and Faces of Tide-Dominated Estuaries -- 6.Stratigraphy of Tide-Dominated Estuaries -- 7. Tide-Dominated Deltas -- 8. Salt Marsh Sedimentation -- 9. Open Coast Tidal Flats -- 10. Siliclastic Back-Barrier Tidal Flats -- 11. Tidal Channels on Tidal Flats and Marshes -- 12. Morphology and Facies Architecture of Tidal Inlets and Tidal Deltas -- 13. Shallow-Marine Tidal Deposits -- 14. Deep-Water Tidal Sedimentology -- 15. Precambrian Tidal Facies -- 16. Hypertidal Facies from the Pennsylvanian Period: East and West Interior Coal Basins, USA -- 17. Tidal Deposits of the Campanian Western Interior Seaway (WIS), Wyoming, Utah and Colorado, USA -- 18. Contrasting Styles of Siliciclastic Tidal Deposits in Developing Thrust Sheet-Top-Basins - the Lower Eocene of the Central Pyrenees (Spain) -- 19. Holocene Tidal Flats -- 20. Tidal Sands of the Bahamas Archipelago -- 21. Ancient Carbonate Tidalites- Index. This book presents a comprehensive, contemporary review of tidal environments and deposits. Individual chapters, each written by world-class experts, cover the full spectrum of coastal, shallow-marine and even deep-marine settings where tidal action influences or controls sediment movement and deposition. Both siliciclastic and carbonate deposits are covered. Various chapters examine the dynamics of sediment transport by tides, and the morphodynamics of tidal systems. Several chapters explore the occurrence of tidal deposits in the stratigraphic context of entire sedimentary basins. This book is essential reading for both coastal geologists and managers, and geologists interested in extracting hydrocarbons from complex tidal successions.
