Produced by members of the Society's Stratigraphy Commission, the volume explains the different stratigraphical methods, shows how they can be applied by the practicing geologist and, where appropriate, indicates their current limitations. It is a new version of the Society's long-established Guide to Stratigraphical Procedure, and has been expanded to embrace modern developments in the definition and correlation of rock sequences. It offers clear guidelines on stratigraphical practice but is not intended as a formal stratigraphical code. It is aimed primarily at geologists working in the United Kingdom and therefore mainly utilizes UK examples.
