DEVELOPMENT AND FUTURE OF SEDIMENTOLOGY
Zeng Yunfu, Qin Jianxiong (Chengdu University of Technology, China)
The concept of sedimentology originated from the 19th century and underwent 3 development stages: sedimentary petrology, sedimentology, and sedimentary geology. Untill now, with the development of series of frontier , branch , intersect , and cross discinplines, sedimentology develops rapidly, including sequence stratigraphy , event sedimentology, deposit sedimentology, experimental sedimentology, tectonic sedimentoloy, reservoir sedimentology, global cyclestratigraphy etc.. By the time of the 21th century, sedimentology will not only develop further in aspects of geodynamies and global change etc., but form new fields of discinplines by combining with resource and environmental sciences. They are: (1)resource sedimentology, (2)environmental sedimentology, (3)geodynamic sedimentology, and (4) global change sedimentology etc..
