Beneficial regulation of procedure in editing stratigraphy



In the present state of development of stratigraphy and of international time-correlation, it is important for the editor (a) to encourage discipline in certain data-handling matters, (b) to advise adherence to IUGS decisions on scale definitions, and (c) to allow considerable freedom in matters of correlation method, subject only to normal requirements of clear honest presentation and the statement of confidence and other limitations.
