Sequence Stratigraphy, presently one of the most rapidly growing areas in geology, is concerned with the documentation and prediction of how sandstones (potential hydrocarbon reservoirs) and shales (potential source rocks) are distributed in time and space within sedimentary basins. The book takes a critical look at some of the sequence stratigraphy concepts, and provides an account of how these have been applied recently in NW Europe (North Sea, mid Norway and E. Greenland, Barents Sea and Svalbard), mainly in connection with the exploration for oil and gas.

@qu:This is a beautifully-presented collection of conference papers with a considerable number of effective illustrations in colour, including fold-out cross sections. Apart from contributing significantly to the geology of the North Sea and Greenland regions, it provides a good introduction to sequence stratigraphy and its uses in petroleum exploration and development. @source:Australian Mineral Foundation Reviews
