Sequence stratigraphy is important to all subsurface geologists, and a thorough understanding of the principles can help you with a wide variety of plays, ranging from deep marine clastics, to fine-grained clastics (shale plays).
AAPG and its sister organization, SEPM, offer a wide array of informational and instructional materials to help you learn what sequence stratigraphy is, and to apply it in ways that will help you.
Test your knowledge of sequence stratigraphy by taking the quick ten-question quiz. Be sure to fill in your full name -- you'll be able to print out a certificate of completion, which includes your score on the quiz.
If you need to refresh your knowledge, please check out this website (provided by AAPG's sister society, SEPM). You may open the website and keep it open in a separate window while you take the quiz if you'd like an "open book" experience. http://www.sepmstrata.org/page.aspx?&pageid=15&3
