Presents a selection of some of the recent research activities and developments in the field of continental shelf geology. The book is organised around four major themes: Stratigraphy and sedimentary geology of siliciclastic shelves; Modern siliciclastic shelves: architecture, sea level, tectonics and sediment supply; Nearshore and coastal environments; New techniques in continental shelf research. This volume will be of interest to research workers in the fields of marine geology, sedimentary geology and stratigraphy.
