Stratigraphy free pdf This book incorporates updated material on sequence stratigraphy, reflection-seismic methods, chronostratigraphy, and new concepts regarding the representation of time in the sedimentary record. It also includes a summary history of the development of ideas, concepts and methods leading to the modern stratigraphic synthesis, and features a comprehensive stratigraphic-sedimentologic database. Lastly, facies analysis and facies models are described in detail.

About Andrew D. Miall

Andrew Miall was born in Brighton, England, and was educated there, obtaining a B.Sc. degree at the University of London in 1965. He then emigrated to Canada, and completed his Ph. D. at the University of Ottawa in 1969. He worked in and around the petroleum industry in Calgary for the next 10 years, including a 7-year term as a Research Scientist with the Geological Survey of Canada, working on regional basin studies in the Canadian Arctic Islands. While in Calgary he conceived and chaired the First International Symposium on Fluvial Sedimentology in 1977, an event that is now held every 4 years. Andrew Miall moved to the University of Toronto in 1979, where he has been Professor of Geology. His research in the areas of fluvial sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy is widely used, and he has published several books on these topics. In 2010 he was selected by the federal Environment Minister, the Honorable James Prentice, to serve on a committee of six Canadian scientists enjoined with the task of improving environmental oversight and management of the Canadian oil sands.
