edit A parasequence is a relatively conformable, genetically related succession of beds and bedsets bounded by marine flooding surfaces and their correlative surfaces. In a transgression, less sediment is being supplied than the rate of increase in the depth of water, and thus the shoreline migrates landward. Eustatic sea level is the sea level with reference to a fixed point, the centre of the Earth. Smaller and localised sedimentary cycles are not related to worldwide (eustatic) sea level changes but more to the supply of sediment to the adjacent basins where these sediments are being supplied. A transgressive systems tract (TST) is bounded by maximum regressive surface at the base and maximum flooding surface at the top. Within the Eagle Ford outcrops of west Texas a vertical succession of five informal lithostratigraphic units, referred to as units A to E from the base up, are fairly obvious.

The Sedimentary Record of Sea-Level Change. The peak of this isotope excursion is the assigned proxy for the base of the Turonian Stage. Sequence stratigraphic principles have optimized production potential once reservoir scale architecture is identified and separate drainage units identified. Systems ieee conference research paper tracts edit The concept of systems tracts evolved to link the contemporaneous depositional systems. It is bounded by a subaerial unconformity or its correlative conformity at the base and maximum regressive surface at the top.
