Sea level history: Comment
The article "Chronology of fluctuating sea levels since the Triassic" ( 1) provides a new version of the Exxon-based sea level and sedimentary cycles chart, calibrated to a new geological time scale. It is not clear to us (i) how and why this time scale differs from other recently published scales (2-5); (ii) what the criteria are that are used to correlate the first-, second-, and third-order sedimentary onlap events; and (iii) where the type sections are for the sedimentary sequences.
