The innovation and refinement of the techniques and concepts of sequence stratigraphy has been one of the most exciting and profound developments in geology over the past thirty years. Seismic stratigraphy has now become one of the standard tools of the geoscientist, and there is a pressing need for an introductory text on sequence stratigraphy. This new book sets out to define and explain the concepts, principles and applications of this remarkably influential approach to the study of sedimentary strata. The authors take a rigorous objective stance in evaluating the techniques and interpretation of sequence stratigraphy - basing the text on an internal training course developed by British Petroleum (BP).
  • A new text on this increasingly important field
  • A practical guide based on the experience of practising sequence stratigraphers
  • Based on a highly successful BP training course

this book is very meaningfull and very beautifully illustrated the complex geology and sedimentology and deposition in very easy wording.
Its a 3 week course book which is more practical then
theoretical written by BP professionals and also a text book for BP trainees.
I have read this book for sequence stratigraphy and this only book is very enough to build my foundation in field of sequence and seismic stratigraphy,
IT is must have book for sequence stratigrapher
