A Day in the Life of a JR Sedimentologist

I’ve never seriously studied sediments before. I’m used to working with “hard rock” – specifically basalt, which is rock that once flowed out of a volcano as molten lava. Sediments on the other hand can be made up of pieces of many different types of rock, or even other materials like shells or parts of tiny organisms. So I was excited to try my hand as a sedimentologist for the day.
