Relative Role of Eustasy, Climate, and Tectonism in Continental Rocks

Papers in this title offer understanding of allocyclic controls on non-marine stratigraphy, allowing better predictions about the nature and geometry of strata within areas of basins where data are more limited. Thus one can better estimate the potential for oil, gas, coal, or mineral accumulations. Authors examine the relative importance of eustasy, climate, and sedimentation supply in determining the nature of lithologies and the packaging of continental strata.
