Catastrophism and the Historical Roots of Sequence Stratigraphy

Alongside 3-D seismic, long-reach horizontal drilling and the application of plate tectonics to exploration, sequence stratigraphy has been one of the greatest scientific advances within the petroleum geology industry of the last 50 years. Since it came to the wider attention of the industry in 1977, it has been embraced because the integration of time-significant surfaces with stratigraphic architecture provides great predictive insight at a variety of scales and extracts value from many data types.
