About this book

Sequence stratigraphy has experienced a virtual explosion of applications in recent years. During that time, the concepts upon which sequence stratigraphy is based have been evolving to conform to new observations as well as new types of data. Siliciclastic Sequence Stratigraphy summarizes the current status of this discipline as it applies to siliciclastic deposits. The emphasis in Siliciclastic Sequence Stratigraphy is on sequence stratigraphy as an "approach" to geological analysis, rather than as a model to which all data sets must conform. The expression of sequence architecture and the nature of bounding surfaces is illustrated through examples and applications drawn from a range of data types, including outcrop, core, wireline log, and 3-D seismic data. In addition, sequence expression also is illustrated using examples of modern landforms.
