Advances in Carbonate Sequence Stratigraphy: Application to Resevoirs, Outcrops and Models

SEPM Special Publication 63

Paul M. (Mitch) Harris, Arthur H. Saller, J.A. (Toni) Simo

Publication date: 1999

The SEPM Research Symposium for the 1997 AAPG-SEPM Annual Meeting in Dallas, Texas, was organized around the theme "Advances in Carbonate Sequence Stratigraphy - Application to Reservoirs, Outcrops and Models." The symposium proved to be thought-provoking and forward-looking and showed how sequence stratigraphy is influencing many aspects in our understanding of carbonates.

Title information

The SEPM Research Symposium for the 1997 AAPG-SEPM Annual Meeting in Dallas, Texas, was organized around the theme "Advances in Carbonate Sequence Stratigraphy - Application to Reservoirs, Outcrops and Models." The symposium proved to be thought-provoking and forwardlooking and showed how sequence stratigraphy is influencing many aspects in our understanding of carbonates. This SEPM Special Publication contains studies that represent advances in our understanding of stratigraphy and the distribution of carbonate facies and diagenesis within a sequence stratigraphic framework. The case studies in this volume reinforce the observation that the most important factor controlling stratigraphic relationships in accommodation change, which is generally a product of variations in eustatic sea level and tectonic subsidence. The sequence stratigraphic studies included in this publication develop a better framework for interpreting depostional and diagenetic processes in carbonate strata. The subject matter falls generally into five main categories: (1) platform to basin stratigraphic correlation and facies distribution, (2) high-resolution sequence framework bridging the gap between seismic-scale and reservoir-scale stratigraphy, (3) cycle-stacking patterns and their relationship to longer-term sequences, (4) sequence stratigraphy and facies of slope and basin carbonates, and (5) paleoceanographic factors that cause variation in carbonate deposition.
