Sea-Level Changes: An Integrated Approach
Sea-Level Changes: An Integrated Approach - In October 1985, SEPM sponsored a four-day conference entitled ?Sea-Level Changes ? An Integrated Approach.? The purpose of the conference was to provide a forum for an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas on sea-level changes and to provide an opportunity for integrating various types of evidence in approaching unresolved issues. The conference was successful in bringing together scientists from industry, academia, and government, representing all of the major geosciences disciplines. Presentations of many new papers, plus significant releases of data that were previously held proprietary, provided fertile ground for discussion. This much-cited volume represents the best of the material presented at the conference. Includes the early ?Vail? chart.

Type 1 and type 2 sequence boundaries can be used for regional correlation in seismic, wireline log, and outcrop data. Marine condensed sections (zones of markedly reduced sedimentation) divide these sequences and are recognized seismically as downlap surfaces. Sequence boundaries can be dated at their basinward correlative conformities. Depositional sequences are not synthems or allostratigraphic units. Synthems or allostratigraphic units are extended only as far as both of the bounding unconformities or discontinuities are identifiable. Sequences are bounded by unconformities and their correlative conformities and so are identifiable beyond the extent of their bounding discontinuities. Because most of the...
