  -Stratigraphic concepts and lithostratigraphy
1- Compaction: This is a physical process form mainly because of burial and accumulation of sediments which cause the decrease of pores and pushing the grains (particles) closer together. 2-Cementation: Grains are cemented together by deposition of...
