The key to recognizing the third and fourth order depositional sequences is the maximum flooding surface. An age designation of this surface is extremely important in seismic sequence stratigraphic analysis. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to recognize and date the Cenozoic, Cretaceous, and Jurassic maximum flooding surfaces in Ma and to assign a specific numerical age and letter designation to each of these maximum flooding surfaces from the Jurassic to Recent. These numerical age designations are proposed as a standard of reference for these maximum flooding surfaces worldwide.
