General Remarks About Event Deposits

  • Conference paper
Cyclic and Event Stratification

Abstract

Rare, but geologically common events such as severe storms, floods, turbidity currents, seismic shocks and volcanic eruptions leave behind bed units with distinctive sedimentological and ecological features and successions. Event stratigraphy has potential applications in correlation, basin analysis and evolutionary research.
