Stratigraphy: A Modern Synthesis – A new book published by Andrew Miall

Publication is announced of the new book “Stratigraphy: A Modern Synthesis” by Andrew Miall. The book is published by Springer-Verlag, Berlin, and may be purchased from their website, Springer.com.

In this book Andrew has attempted to bring together the main themes in sedimentary geology that have been evolving since the 1960s, including the evolution of sedimentology, the emergence of sequence stratigraphy as a primary research methodology, dramatic improvements in the methods of chronostratigraphy, and the increasing power of the methods of reflection-seismology for subsurface mapping and stratigraphic interpretation. Together these have created what Andrew called, in a recent review paper for GSA, “Sophisticated Stratigraphy.”
