Recent Developments in Facies Models for Siliciclastic Sediments.
Miall, Andrew D.
Journal of Geological Education, v30 n4 p222-40 Sep 1982
Discusses theory of facies models (attempts to synthesize/generalize information about depositional environments), strengths/weaknesses of facies modelling, recent advances in facies models for siliciclastic sediments (focusing on fluvial, lacustrine, eolian and glacial environments, clastic shorelines and continental shelves, and clastic continental slope and deep oceanic environments), and implications for teaching.
