Andrew D. Miall University of Toronto Dept. Toronto, ON Andrew D. Miall September 2009 Acknowledgements My own interest in sequence stratigraphy began slowly, as my work on regional basin analysis for the Geological Survey of Canada matured in the late 1970s, and I am grateful to this organization for introducing me to the scope and sweep of large-scale regional analysis.
The Geology of Stratigraphic Sequences. Authors: Miall, Andrew
The Geology of Stratigraphic Sequences. Authors: Miall, Andrew. Situates sequences within the broader context of geological processes so that geoscientists are better equipped to extract the maximum information from the record of sequences in a given basin or region. Essential reading for professional geologists involved in coal, gas and petroleum geology as well as hydrology. Stresses a deductive approach to geology placing the evidence before the model, making this a must read for all students of geology.
Sequence stratigraphy represents a new paradigm in geology. The principal hypothesis is that stratigraphie successions may be subdivided into discrete sequences bounded by widespread unconformities. There are two parts to this hypothesis.
In the early modern period of sequence stratigraphy (the late 1970s and 1980s) the model of global eustasy .
Model-building has been central to the science of geology from the beginninga "it was certainly a preoccupation of such early mas.

Andrew D. ISBN 978-3-319-24302-3 DOI 1. 7. ISBN 978-3-319-24304-7. 7, which includes a discussion of the current attempts to standardize ic terminology and the Geological Time Scale. Chapter 8, the concluding chapter of the book, focuses on the new understanding we are acquiring about the processes by which the stratigraphic record preserves elapsed geologic time.
Miall is a skeptic of most far-reaching sequence stratigraphic interpretations, but this book is modern (1997) and provides a balance treatment of the topic. While certianly not the only source for the study of sequence stratigraphy, it is a recommended addition to any library on the subject. 14 people found this helpful.

Much progress has been made, but some controversies remain. The original ideas of Sloss and of Vail (building on the early work of Blackwelder, Grabau, Ulrich, Levorsen and others) that the stratigraphic record could be subdivided into sequences, and that these sequences store essential information about basin-forming and subsidence processes, remains as powerful an idea as when it was first formulated. The definition and mapping of sequences has become a standard part of the basin analysis. Download (pdf, 3. 4 Mb) Donate Read.
