Strong and Paola (2008) have written a seminal paper rich with insights that contribute to our understanding of the origin and time significance of sequence boundaries. These insights derive from the animated proxy for natural depositional systems offered by the experimental flume approach. Their perspective differs from the finished-product vantage provided by the rock and sediment record, and the work-in-progress view granted by the recent stratigraphy of extant depositional systems. Still, these rock and recent perspectives provide critical angles to the full view of sequences and through their differing datal slant have already rendered comparatively supportable versions of the Strong...
