Implications of Modern Sedimentary Environments for Sequence Stratigraphy
One method of testing the concept of sequence stratigraphy is to compare it with the deposits of well established modern sedimentary environments. In the northern Gulf of Mexico, the late Wisconsinan-Holocene Mississippi River has deposited a Type 1 sequence which includes lowstand, transgressive and highstand systems tracts. Results from modern Mississippi River sedimentary environments support the methodology used in sequence analysis but raise important problems for sequence time scales, correlation and driving mechanisms.
