By R. G. Loucks, J. Frederick Sarg

Derived from the 1991 examine Symposium on Carbonate series Stratigraphy, the authors have introduced jointly in a single quantity a consultant sampling of pivotal examine during this very important subject. Its 3 sections describe (1) series options and sedimentologic rules, (2) seismic series case stories regarding seismic and outcrop interpretations, and (3) examples of high-frequency, meter-scale cycle deposition and stacking patterns.
