Stratigraphy has come to be indispensable to nearly all branches of the earth sciences, assisting such endeavors as charting the course of evolution, understanding ancient ecosystems, and furnishing data pivotal to finding strategic mineral resources. This book focuses on traditional and innovative stratigraphy techniques and how these can be used to reconstruct the geological history of sedimentary basins and in solving manifold geological problems and phenomena.
Provides innovative and traditional techniques in stratigraphy
These techniques contribute to geological and paleobiological researches, for example:
- charting the course and complexities of the evolution of life through time
- understanding how ancient ecosystems developed and operated
- furnishing data pivotal to strategic mineral exploration
