By Bernadette Tessier,Jean-Yves Reynaud

Tidal deposits were a particular examine subject for roughly forty years, and when this has led to a proliferation of papers in medical journals, there have purely been a couple of book-length syntheses. through the years, tidal sedimentology has been strengthened via fluid mechanics and numerical modelling yet has remained rooted in facies and stratigraphic reviews. fresh advancements in tidal sedimentology lean towards a extra quantitative evaluate of the imprint of tides within the facies list of intertidal and shallow subtidal parts. They spotlight the expanding relevance of tidal deposits reports, from excessive solution subsurface reservoir geology to weather swap and sea-level upward push. This quantity gathers 17 contributions to the Tidalites 2012 congress held in Caen, France. It displays present advances within the sedimentology and stratigraphy of tidal deposits, in either old and sleek environments. It indicates the present range of this box of analysis, via a large spectrum of tools together with distant sensing, in-situ hydrodynamical measurements, and ichnology, as well as vintage box reviews and petrography.
