 About the Book 

Quartz is a major porosity-destroying cement in many sandstones. Despite its simple chemistry and crystallography, it is the source of many conflicts and disagreements within the petrographic community about practically every aspect of its genesis.MoreQuartz is a major porosity-destroying cement in many sandstones. Despite its simple chemistry and crystallography, it is the source of many conflicts and disagreements within the petrographic community about practically every aspect of its genesis. The ultimate goal of research into quartz cement is the ability to make robust predictions of the amount and distribution of quartz cement in the full spectrum of sedimentary-basin settings for the major lithofacies, and for the wide variety of burial, pressure and thermal histories. Quartz Cementation in Sandstones focuses attention on this debate.
