Testing Cenozoic Eustatic Changes: The Critical Role of Stratigraphic Resolution

Miller, Kenneth G.; Kent, Dennis V.

"Integration of magnetostratigraphy, biostratigraphy, sequence stratigraphy, and isotope stratigraphy provides a means to decipher the temporal relationships among lithological, geophysical, and geochemical indications of sea-level changes. However, the importance of chronology in testing cause and effect relationships among inferred sea-level changes is often underestimated. Firm chronostratigraphic control is required to establish equivalency among events. The establishment of age equivalency between two events does not prove cause, but rather constitutes a necessary condition for inferring causal relationships."--page 51.
