The remains of skeletal hard parts in marine sediments are of particular interest to the geologist. If he is able to relate these remains in recent sediments to the environment of deposition (water movement, water chemistry, water depth, distance from land, distance from the open ocean, bottom type, etc.) he is then able to deduce the environment of deposition of ancient sediments.
