In recent years there has been a huge expansion in studies using high resolution sequence stratigraphic techniques. Sequence stratigraphy has evolved from the original concepts of seismic stratigraphy to a scale above seismic resolution. Concepts developed at outcrop are now being successfully applied to sub-surface data sets and are providing a greatly improved understanding of facies geometries and reservoir architecture. This has resulted in the reappraisal of the geology of regions which have been studied for many decades and sequence stratigraphy has developed into a powerful, predictive facies analysis tool for both the hydrocarbon industry and academic research. The papers in this volume illustrate the depth and breadth of current sequence stratigraphic research. Studies are included on many aspects of sequence stratigraphy, from both outcrop and subsurface data with examples from a wide range of countries.
