Sedimentary Processes, Environments and Basins: A Tribute to

For a number of many years Peter pal has been one of many best figures in sedimentary geology and all through that point he has helped ratings of alternative humans by way of supervising doctoral scholars, taking part with colleagues, particularly in constructing nations, and selflessly sharing rules with fellow geologists. This number of papers is a survey of the study frontier in basin dynamics, a box Peter buddy helped begin, and a token of thank you from those who have benefited from an organization with Peter in the course of their careers.
