This book incorporates updated material on sequence stratigraphy, reflection-seismic methods, chronostratigraphy, and new concepts regarding the representation of time in the sedimentary record. It also includes a summary history of the development of ideas, concepts and methods leading to the modern stratigraphic synthesis, and features a comprehensive stratigraphic-sedimentologic database. Lastly, facies analysis and facies models are described in detail.
