One of the controversial and still debated issues of sequence stratigraphy is the assessment of stratigraphic surfaces in a chronostratigraphic framework (Catuneanu, 2006.)

New software developments enable us to study stratigraphic surfaces within such a chronostratigraphic framework and allow us to predict something about their “time attributes.”
