Summary Quartz is the major porosity-reducing cement in many sandstone sequences. Therefore, Quartz cements represent a key source of petrographic and geochemical information about diagenetic history. They are also the major determinant of sandstone reservoir quality. While the ultimate goal of research in this area is to make robust predictions about the amount and distribution of quartz cements in a wide variety of depositional and burial settings, there are nevertheless large areas of the subject that are poorly understood and remain the subject of controversy. The aim of this Volume, which is base
