Concepts of seismic and sequence stratigraphy as outlined in publications since 1977 made a substantial impact on sedimentary geology. The notion that changes in relative sea level shape sediment in predictable packages across the planet was intuitively attractive to many sedimentologists and stratigraphers. The initial stratigraphic record of Mesozoic and Cenozoic depositional sequences, laid down in response to changes in relative sea level, published in Science in 1987 was greeted with great, albeit mixed, interest. The concept of sequence stratigraphy received much acclaim whereas the chronostratigraphic record of Mesozoic and Cenozoic sequences suffered from a perceived absence of biostratigraphic...
