Rock that has formed through the deposition and solidification of sediment, especially sediment transported by water (rivers, lakes, and oceans), ice (glaciers), and wind. Sedimentary rocks are often deposited in layers, and frequently contain fossils.
Note: Limestone and shale are common sedimentary rocks.
sedimentary rock are formed of material usually derived from the breaking up and wearing away of older rocks.
A butte is a hill of sedimentary rock, not mountain-like in appearance, and standing by itself in a flat region.
The upper series of sedimentary rock has suffered but slight deformation.
No sedimentary rock must be regarded as unfossiliferous, however unfitted it appears for the preservation of fossils.
