Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Sedimentary basins with a marine connection show significant stratigraphic variations that result from eustatic sea-level fluctuation. Other key factors controlling stratigraphy include the availability of sediment and the role of tectonically induced subsidence and uplift. Tectonic activity is important as a causal mechanism for the production of certain regional and local-scale sequence boundaries, generating accommodation space, altering base levels and controlling source areas. These papers address the relative roles of tectonics, eustasy and sediment supply in generating stratigraphy.
