Sedimentology is defined as the study of Sediments and the process of their formation that took place in the prehistoric times. More than 75% of the earth surface is covered by Sediments and Sedimentary rocks. These studies are of great importance for investigating the availability of resources such as coal, gas,oil, groundwater and geothermal energy. Furthermore they avail raw materials for monument stone, chemical industry and bulk materials for building purposes.
Review articles are the summary of current state of understanding on a particular research topic. They analyze or discuss research previously published by scientist and academicians rather than reporting novel research results.
Review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications.
