Abstract

A simple model is outlined which links continental sedimentary environments and facies with their relative position within a basin, and with the prevailing climate. The model may be used for predicting vertical and lateral facies changes within a succession of continental sediments. It is a useful tool both in the search for hydrocarbon reservoirs, and in the understanding of reservoir properties.
