Sequence-stratigraphic concepts are used to identify genetically related strata and their bounding regional unconformities, or their correlative conformities, in seismic, well-log, and outcrop data. Documentation and age dating of these features in marine outcrops in different parts of the world have led to a new generation of Mesozoic and Cenozoic sea-level cycle charts with greater event resolution than that obtainable from seismic data alone. The cycles of sea-level change, interpreted from the rock record, are tied to an integrated chronostratigraphy that combines state-of-the-art geochronologic, magnetostratigraphic and biostratigraphic data. In this article we discuss the reasoning behind integrated chronostratigraphy and...
