The sequence stratigraphic methodology can be readily applied to the cratonic basin-fill of the German Triassic System, which consists of shallow-marine to terrestrial mixed carbonate/siliciclastic rocks. The whole Triassic succession represents a second-order transgression/regression cycle, in which the continental redbeds of the Buntsandstein pass gradually upwards into Muschelkalk carbonates and evaporites and back into continental Keuper redbeds. Peak transgression occurred during the Late Muschelkalk (Ladinian). The Triassic cycle is built by at least 13 3rd-order depositional sequences, consisting of systems tracts and parasequences. Many bounding surfaces represent widely used marker beds, long used in classical lithostratigraphy.
