Item description for The Geology of Stratigraphic Sequences by Andrew D. Miall...
This book provides a unique survey of the worldwide database of sequence stratigraphy, reviews the methods for describing sequences and assessing causes of sequence generation, and provides an in-depth analysis of the mechanisms of sequence development. The book reviews the present status of global cycle correlation and the hypothesis of global eustacy, and examines the applications of sequence stratigraphy to studies in practical petroleum geology. Students, lecturers, researchers, and practitioners are provided with a critical, but balanced, appraisal of modern concepts in this rapidly developing and controversial area. Ideas and concepts originating from a wide range of individuals and "schools" of thought are discussed and evaluated. A very extensive bibliography is included.

Foundation for sequence stratigraphic analysis Nov 29, 1998
This text, combined with the work by Vail et al. (AAPG, Memoir 26) and Haq et al. (Science, v235, pp 1156-1167) form the foundation for sequence stratigraphic analysis. Miall is a skeptic of most far-reaching sequence stratigraphic interpretations, but this book is modern (1997) and provides a balance treatment of the topic. While certianly not the only source for the study of sequence stratigraphy, it is a recommended addition to any library on the subject.
