Written by one of Korea's most respected earth scientists,Geology and Sedimentology of the Korean Peninsulaanalyzes sedimentary facies, basin evolution, and sequence stratigraphy to provide answers to depositional processes and environmental changes through the Earth's history, including tectonic events, climate changes, and sea-level fluctuations. This is one of the first books covering the geology of the Korean peninsula. It offers an in-depth exploration of this region, which also allows comparison with sedimentary basins around the world. This is an important book for students, researchers, and professionals working in the geography of East Asia.

The study of sedimentary basins can help advance basic understanding of how the Earth's crust developed, as well as offer insights into the influence of environmental and climate change. Sedimentary basins are also of interest due to their importance in the exploration and recovery of natural resources, including oil and gas, water, and industrial minerals.

  • Provides fundamental information on the geology of East Asia
  • Serves as a guide for integrated sedimentary basin analysis, providing a detailed aid for comparative research
  • Contains over 200 figures to illustrate the analysis

Editorial Reviews

"This is an extensively researched and well-documented book with numerous detailed drawings and sketches that can help you find answers to the above and give you a better geological understanding of the Korean peninsula."--Biz India Online News, April 17, 2014 "Chough summarizes the current knowledge of dynamic processes and environmental changes in the Korean peninsula on land and under the sea during the Phanerozoic Era. His main focus is on the evolution of sedimentary basins from sedimentary facies to plate tectonics."--Reference and Research Book News, August 2013
