The papers in this volume cover surface and subsurface rocks from a wide range of stratigraphic ages and sedimentary environment, but in addressing the application of sequence stratigraphy to British geology, this book focuses on diverse aspects of sequence stratigraphy that tend to cut across divisions based on depositional environments or age alone. 

There are two main themes that run through most of the papers in this volume. (1) Biostratigraphical control is commonly so good in much of Britain that precise correlations are possible within and between basins. For this reason, many of the British outcrop sections serve as standards that can be compared to other areas around the world. (2) Many geologists have to work with the rocks they are given, rather than the rocks they would interpret by choice. Many, perhaps all, of the successions described in this volume may rightly be considered as difficult to interpret. However, as is demonstrated, sequence stratigraphical ideas can cast new light on problematic facies, and in return problematic facies can offer critical insights into the sequence stratigraphical model.
