Applications of Bio-, Chemo-, and Lithostratigraphy to Sequence


In improving litho- and seismic stratigraphic correlations and insodoing
better characterizing paleoenvironmental processes/effects, integration
of multiple datasets is paramount.  A robust biostratigraphic framework
provides the age constraint fundamental to accurate correlation.
Lithologic interpretation via chemostratigraphy, quantitative mineralogy
and inorganic elemental optimization methods can provide the
reconstruction of geologic processes that govern the ecology and
environment.  Within a chronologic and paleoceanographic framework, we
can begin to identify maximum flooding surfaces and ultimately sequence
boundaries to contextualize outcrops or well data to global cyclicity
encompassing Milankovitch and global sea level cycles.  We invite papers
which utilize multiple tools and methodologies in characterizing rock
units, and on a wider level, tools for teaching such integrative
