The classification of sedimentary rocks

By: Effie Moore Salem
Sedimentary rocks, or rocks formed from sediment, dust, garden soil, particulates from the air, substances from lakes, rivers, creeks, and ponds that have become stationary, are of three basic divisions: siliciclastic - or clastic - chemical and biochemical.
