Abstract

The formation of sedimentary rocks may be reduced, in its most general form, to the following scheme: mobilization of substances by weathering of parent rocks or by other means→transfer of sedimentary material and partial deposition of this material in the course of transport→arrival of the sediments at the terminal discharge basins and the final precipitation of the sediments here, which is conditioned by the physicochemical and hydrobiological peculiarities of the basins→conversion of sediments to rocks.
