Drawing on a mixture of contemporary occurrences and certain historical opposite numbers, this atlas is a treatise of mat-related sedimentary beneficial properties that one might anticipate to determine in historic terrigenous clastic sedimentary successions. through combining smooth and old examples, the relationship is made to most likely formative strategies and the usage of those gains within the interpretation of old sedimentary rocks.

* the 1st complete compilation of microbial mat features/structures preserved within the sliciclastic rock record
* top of the range, complete colour images absolutely help the text
* smooth and historical examples attach the formative techniques and usage of mat-related positive factors within the interpretation of sedimentary rocks

Some mat chips lie upside down on muddy substrate of the lower terrace. Photo: Nora Noffke. (D) Microbial mat chips accumulating behind stands of halophytes. Photo: Nora Noffke. (E) Subaqueous erosion-edge of mat, and reworking of mat; loose and thin mats growing on soft muddy sediments producing fragile mat chips.

Slime-enriched threads, films and bubbles provide various interfaces and three-dimensional spaces for the bacterial front to move into the pelagic realm.
