Miall A.D. The Geology of Stratigraphic Sequences
Springer, 2010, 2nd Edition. - p.522
The main purpose of this book remains the same as it was for the first edition, that is, to situate sequences within the broader context of geological processes, and to answer the question: why do sequences form? Geoscientists might thereby be better equipped to extract the maximum information from the record of sequences in a given basin or region.
Central to the concept of the sequence is the deductive model that sequences carryи messages about the pulse of the earth. In the early modern period of sequence stratigraphy (the late 1970s and 1980s) the model of global eustasy was predominant, and it was to offer a critique of that model that provided the impetus for developing the first edition of this book. Model-building has been central to the science of geology from the beginning; it was certainly a preoccupation of such early masters of the science as Lyell, Chamberlin, Barrell, Ulrich and Grabau. A historical evaluation of the contrasting deductive and inductive approaches to geology has been added to this edition of the book, in order to provide a background in methodology and a historical context.
Standard sequence models have become very well described and understood for most depositional settings, and are the subject of several recent texts. Two chapters are provided in this edition in order to outline modern ideas, and to provide a framework of terminology and illustration for the remainder of the book.
A major component of the first edition was devoted to a documentation and illustration of the main types of sequence in the geological record, ranging from those representing hundreds of millions of years to the high-frequency sequences formed by rapid cyclic processes lasting a few tens of thousands of years. Such documentation remains a major component of the book, and has been updated with new examples.
