This unique textbook describes how past changes in sea level can be detected through an analysis of the sedimentary record In particular, it concentrates on the current sequence stratigraphy model It explains this model from basics and shows how the model can be applied to both siliciclastic and carbonate successions Designed for undergraduate and graduate courses in sequence stratigraphy, as well as for professional courses within the petroleum industry, this full colour textbook includes numerous features that will aid tutors and students alike These include detailed case studies demonstrating the practical applications of sequence stratigraphy and set aside boxes providing supplementary and background information Bulleted questions and answers are interspersed throughout the text, encouraging students to test their understanding of the material The book is supported by a website hosting sample pages from the book, selected illustrations to download, and worked exercises....

The Sedimentary Record of Sea-Level Change Reviews
Ein modernes Buch, sowohl inhaltlich als auch im Layout und der Didaktik. Erläutert das Modell der Sequenzstratigraphie in der Theorie und anhand realler Beispiele (Golf von Mexiko, bookcliff). Fokussiert dabei auf Klastika. Karbonate werden aber auch zufriedenstellend abgehandelt.Jeder Schritt wird gut mit bunten Illustrationen begleitet.
I gave it one star because I never got the book. I believe the first time I ordered the book, it turned out to be unavailable, and I got a reimbursement. The second time I order the book, it didn't arrive. My memory, however, may be faulty. There has been more than enough time for the book to arrive. Sincerely,Douglas W. Kirkland
Very understandable, clear writing...a MUST have.
I received the book on time. The description online was exactly how I received the book. There is nothing wrong with it.
Excellent, great illustrations that cleared up a lot of areas that I hadn't understood in the past. Very well written.
it is a very good introduction book for sequence stratigraphy with beautiful and clearly illustrated graphs. For me, it has some very impressive figures which is much better than some other sequence stratigraphy textbook.
