    The book reviews the present status of global cycle correlation and the hypothesis of global eustacy, and examines the applications of sequence stratigraphy to studies in practical petroleum geology. Students, lecturers, researchers, and practitioners are provided with a critical, but balanced, appraisal of modern concepts in this rapidly Author: Andrew D. Miall. The objective of this book is to present the sequence stratigraphic method in its current form in an attempt to clarify its usage and application in diverse geologic data and depositional environments. This publication is the result of more than 3 decades of sequence stratigraphy research and application.

    Stratigraphic studies deal primarily with sedimentary rocks but may also encompass layered igneous rocks (e.g., those resulting from successive lava flows) or metamorphic rocks formed either from such extrusive igneous material or from sedimentary rocks.. A common goal of stratigraphic studies is the subdivision of a sequence of rock strata into mappable units, determining the time. Stratigraphy is That branch of geology that deals with formation, composition, sequence, and correlation of stratified rocks. Since the whole Earth is stratified, at least in a broad sense, bodies Author: Norman Macleod.

Sequence stratigraphy is a branch of geology that attempts to subdivide and link sedimentary deposits into unconformity bound units on a variety of scales and explain these stratigraphic units in terms of variations in sediment supply and variations in the rate of change in accommodation space (relative sea level, the combination of eustatic sea level and tectonic subsidence).

The original ideas of Sloss and of Vail (building on the early work of Blackwelder, Grabau, Ulrich, Levorsen and others) that the stratigraphic record could be subdivided into sequences, and that these sequences store essential information about basin-forming and subsidence processes, remains as powerful an idea as when it was first formulated.

The study of stratified rocks is called stratigraphy. It’s the branch of geology that deals with the description, correlation, and interpretation of stratified sediments and stratified rocks on and in the Earth. Inasmuch as by far the greatest part of the uppermost zone of the earth’s bedrock is sedimentary rock.

Sequence stratigraphy, a branch of sedimentary stratigraphy, uses the order strata accumulated in along with a framework of major depositional and erosional surfaces to interpret the depositional setting of clastic and carbonate sediments from continental, marginal marine, basin margins and down-slope settings of basins.

It is essential reading for professional geologists.The role of hydrothermal fluids during the crystallization of layered intrusions and the ore deposits they contain has long been debated.

In his book published in entitle ‘Principle of stratigraphy’  Amadeus William Grabau  defined stratigraphy as “ it is inorganic side of historical geology, or the development through the successive geological ages of the earth in rocky framework or lithosphere”, Krumbein and Sloss () stated that stratigraphy may now be considered as the integrating science which combines data from .
