Description:

This illustrated textbook describes how past changes in sea-level can be detected through an analysis of the sedimentary record, and how sequence stratigraphy techniques can provide explanations of how the sedimentary system evolves through geological time. Designed for use in undergraduate and graduate courses, it includes detailed case studies, set-aside focus boxes, and bulleted Questions and Answers interspersed throughout. The book is also supported by a website hosting sample pages.
