11) to determine each specimen’s name. Sedimentary Environments Sedimentary rocks are extremely important in the study of Earth history. The texture and mineral composition of sedimentary rocks often suggest something about the location (environment) where the sediment accumulated. For example, rock salt forms in warm, shallow seas, where the loss of water by evaporation exceeds the annual rainfall. In addition, fossils and sedimentary structures provide important clues about a rock’s history. Think of each sedimentary rock as representing a “place” on Earth where sediment was deposited and later lithified.
