Klíčové slovo
Abstrakt (anglicky)
   The character of the sediment is largely controlled by the type and intensity of weathering in the source area, which are, in turn, governed by the interplay between climate and local tectonics. Detrital sediments consist of fragments of older rocks, minerals or organic remains, while chemogenic and biogenic sediments form by precipitation from solution. Sediment dispersal paths and the shapes of the resulting sedimentary bodies are closely linked with the transport mechanism and depositional environment, which can be deciphered from structures and textures preserved in the sediment.
