Conference investigates formation and preservation of the continental margin stratigraphic record

Authors


Abstract

The seismically observed stratigraphic record on continental margins around the world is the combined product of a variety of depositional and erosional processes that operate at a wide range of temporal and spatial scales. Understanding the nature of this record and how it is produced is becoming more important. It is not only a repository of significant hydrocarbon resources, but also, perhaps, Earth's longest and most reliable record of past climate change.
