Summary Siliciclastic mudrocks, often termed shales, represent more than two thirds of all sedimentary rocks on Earth, yet they are probably the least understood. This volume brings together eight articles on current research on mudrocks of academic and industry importance that help clarify key aspects of sedimentology, mineralogy, origin, and resource distribution in mudrocks.--Publisher's description.
