Time and movement.
The past is key to the present.
The present is key to the past.
Layered character of rocks.
Paleoecological frameworks characterized by unique fossil assemblage
The order in which the strata accumulated combined with depositional and erosional surface frameworks to interpret depositional settings
Basin modeling and sea level
Astroblemes and other allochthonous events that can have local and regional implications, resulting in unique traps
Are subdividing surfaces of the sedimentary section and are commonly generated by the changing relative sea level.
Surfaces that never tie to rebounds due to isostacy and eustacy.
Are boundaries that never have to do shales and TOC, and cannot be considered key indicators of the kitchen.
Are blurring surfaces that have to do with fracture patterns.
Sea level position varied
Subsidence was constant
Sediment supply was constant
All of the above
Involves paleobotany and involves the depth and temperatures of sea water.
Establishes the geochemical signature of different formations.
Proposes that the vertical progression of facies should be the same as corresponding lateral facies changes.
Differentiates between clay minerals and carbonates.
All of the below.
Stratal architecture and the chronological order of the indicated facies along with grain size information and lithology.
The provenance of the different grains, combined with structural systems.
Diagenetic alteration and lamina.
One that never uses water saturation in marker beds as sequence boundaries.
The term used to indicate that hydrothermal alteration has occurred at certain intervals in time.
A stratigraphic unit composed of a relatively conformable succession of genetically related strata and bounded at its top and base by unconformites or their correlative conformity.
Never used in deep marine clastics such as turbidites.
Supports the idea that convection currents and subduction zones are the key to understanding depositional models.
Combines the stratal architecture (geometric relationship) of the sedimentary facies and the chronological order of their accumulation to enhance the interpretation of depositional setting and prediction of stratal continuity.
Involves microseismic, and nothing more.
Allows the geologist to rule out salt tectonics.
Maps lithofacies independent of subdividing external and internal boundaries.
Forces one to include Young's modulus values.
Always puts into question all geomechanical calculations, including pore pressure.
Establishes hiearchies of relevance, exclusing igneous intrusions.
All of the above
