Perspectives in Carbonate Geology: A Tribute to the Career of Robert Nathan Ginsburg


"Perspectives in Carbonate Geology", is a new book for carbonate sedimentology. It will be another great work, it includes 22 chapters, some new models of comparative sedimentology are proposed! Here is the tables of contents, from WILEY!

You can find the manuscript here!
