Oceanic Sedimentation: Lithology and Geochemistry

A. P. Lisitzin

We are pleased to present this edited translation of Oceanic Sedimentation, from the original Russian edition of Alexander Lisitzin's Processes in Oceanic Sedimentation: Lithology and Geochemistry (Nauka). Published originally in 1978, this volume represents an important, major synthesis on oceanic sediments and major processes governing their formation and distribution in space and time. The primary focus of this volume is the influence of the environment, especially climate, on the mineral, chemical, and isotopic composition of sediments and their physical characteristics. This global perspective is rich in data about sediment sources, composition, transportation, volumes, fluxes, and budgets. We consider that this edited translation is of particular importance because Lisitzin's compilation is one of the broadest and most comprehensive available in any language.
