Sedimentology is the science that studies the formation of sediments and sedimentary rocks. By examination of sedimentary structures and the nature of the sediment, a reconstruction can be made of the deposition environment. Study of fossils, if present, and ichnofossils can help. In combination with the stratigraphy of an area, a reconstruction can be made of the development of the depositional environment in geological time.
