Sequence Stratigraphy in Proterozoic Successions

Christie-Blick, Nicholas; Grotzinger, John P.; Von der Borch, C. C.

Sedimentological logging and facies mapping have been used to identify depositional sequences bounded by subtle but regionally persistent unconformities in rocks of Proterozoic age in the western United States, South Australia, and northwestern Canada. We conclude from these studies that the sequence stratigraphic approach is of considerable importance for intrabasinal time correlation in the Proterozoic and for facies interpretation and basin analysis in Proterozoic rocks.
