The study of stratigraphic sequences, defined as stratigraphic units bounded by unconformities.
With improvements in the acquisition and processing of reflection-seismic data by petroleum exploration companies in the 1970s came the recognition that unconformity-bounded sequences could be recognized in most sedimentary basins.
This was the beginning of an important development, seismic stratigraphy, which also included the use of seismic reflection character to make interpretations about large-scale depositional facies and architecture, Seismic stratigraphy and Unconformity
- Time-wise correlation
- Systems tracts interpretation
- Sequence stratigraphic models for petroleum exploration and exploitation
