The ultimate goal of sedimentary geology is to reconstruct the history of the Earth's surface. This paper explores the links between sedimentary rocks and past environments through two major strands: reconstructing depositional environments and understanding the effects of sea-level change on sedimentary processes (sequence stratigraphy). A third strand explores the economic aspects of sedimentary geology, in particular aspects of petroleum geology, including unconventional resources. The paper includes an integrated lab-field component, with a three-day field mapping trip to the North Taranaki region.
