In recent years there has been a huge expansion in studies using high resolution sequence stratigraphic techniques. Sequence stratigraphy has evolved from the original concepts of seismic stratigraphy to a scale above seismic resolution. Concepts developed at outcrop are now being successfully applied to sub-surface data sets and are providing a greatly improved understanding of facies geometries and reservoir architecture. Sequence stratigraphy has developed into a powerful, predictive facies analysis tool for both the hydrocarbon industry and academic research. The 18 papers (abstracted separately) illustrate the depth and breadth of current sequence stratigraphic research.
