A textbook describing how past changes in sea-level can be detected through the analysis of the sedimentary record. In particular, it concentrates on the theory of sequence stratigraphy, which provides a framework for how entire sedimentary systems evolve through geological time. Sequence stratigraphy is a model for dividing the sedimentary record into discrete, sedimentary packages on a range of length- and time-scales, where each package represents a cyclic change in sea-level and/or sediment supply. This techniques is widely used to understand the genesis of the sedimentary record, to examine the global synchronicicty of sedimentary cycels and in the exploration for hydrocarbon reserves.
