Stratigraphy and Sea Level Changes

Part of the Developments in Paleoenvironmental Research book series (DPER, volume 13)

Over the last three decades, intensive industrial drilling and marine geological research climaxing with ODP Leg 184 have generated voluminous data on the variations and distribution of sediment sequences in the South China Sea (SCS). Lithostratigraphy, biostratigraphy and sequence stratigraphy provide evidence of regional tectonic activities and basin evolution. In addition to these classical approaches toward stratigraphic correlation, isotopic stratigraphy based on tuned astronomical cycles is playing an increasingly important role in refining the regional stratigraphy, especially at deep-sea settings. ODP Site 1148 is unique worldwide in providing a continuous isotope sequence for the last 23 myr, and ODP Site 1143 represents one of the best ODP sites worldwide with the highest time-resolution isotope record for the last 5myr.
