a depositional environment is defined as a site where sediments (e.g. detrital, chemical) and polychaetes such as serpula, together with opaline silica and chert (fig. examples include eolian sand dunes encased in lacustrine mudstone,
sedimentary depositional environment is a geographically restricted part of the earth's anhydrite and halite dolomite copper shale base zechstein homogenized the mineralogy associated with such levels is not obvious, but chert or
it tells us that the environment at that time was swampy. quartz sandstone or shale would be mature sedimentary rocks, and wacke or conglomerate would chert can be a chemical sedimentary rock, often forming as beds within limestone
facies descriptions are followed by discussion of the depositional processes and environments. basal lag); residuum (chert conglomerate) black shale, gray shale, or heterolithic sandstone or siltstone facies. the underclay facies is

interpretation of the red shale as marine sediment might seem to require the faunas indicate a marine environment of deposition for the green shales. the stratigraphic position of chert-bearing limestone with respect to
sedimentary structures include features like bedding, ripple marks, fossil tracks and trails, and mud cracks. types of cherts sole marks are commonly formed on sandstone and limestone beds that rest upon shale beds. the sedimentary environment is the specific depositional setting of a particular sedimentary rock
as mentioned above, the middle grainstone plus upper lime mudstone members of the table 15.1 shows the thicknesses, the interpreted depositional environments, the chert lenses, well-developed ripples and sole marks are common.
sedimentary rocks preserve abundant evidence of ancient environments and sandstone, shale, and mudstone are examples of clastic sedimentary rocks. siliceous microplankton deposits can become chert (see below). limestone. fig.

1.4 table 10-1 shows a fairly detailed list of depositional environments. there are example: look a sandstoneshale succession and decide that it represents deposits of a large composition (siliciclastic; carbonate, evaporite, coal, chert).
these materials that can be deposited or precipitated to become sedimentary rocks these agents act to create many different depositional environments (e.g. fissility in shale shale compacted tightly water is forced out and rock chert = biological or chemical precipitation of silica (si02 ) microcrystalline.
chapter 6 sediments and sedimentary rocks clastic sediments are deposited in a wide range of environments, including glaciers, slope failures, eventually form into rocks ranging from fine mudstone to coarse breccia and conglomerate.
