As editor Dave Lentz observes in his introductory chapter "Geochemistry of sediments and sedimentary rock: historical to research perspectives" the developments in mass spectrometer and microanalytical technology have seen an explosion of compositional data over the last decade at levels of precision and detection hitherto unattainable, and this has allowed more stringent constraints to be placed on sedimentary processes, particularly via the use of isotope geochemistry.
