Product Description

Review

"This volume has the best explanation and exploration of sequence stratigraphy yet published. It stands above earlier such books not only because of its outstanding graphics and clear prose, but also because it approaches the topic philosophically, emphasizing the cognitive models as much as the geological...All libraries with geological science programs should have this book, as should all sedimentologists and stratigraphers. Summing Up: Essential. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." -CHOICE "Outstanding conceptual diagrams and illustrations including color photos of geologic outcrops, well cuttings, cores, well logs, and 3D seismic data are the backbone of this book. I firmly believe that this will be a bestseller in the Earth sciences. I really enjoyed reading this extraordinarily comprehensive text." --THE LEADING EDGE, The Society of Exploration Geophysicists, May 2007 "Principles of Sequence Stratigraphy" is an up-to-date and comprehensive textbook covering both theory and practice of sequence stratigraphy." - Journal of Sedimentary Research, August 2006 "Octavian Catuneanu has written a balanced, well illustrated and up-to-date overview of the various approaches to sequence stratigraphy." - Journal of Sedimentary Research, August 2006

A superb book - I didnt take enough notice of sequence stratigraphy at uni but this book more than fills in the gaps, whilst making the whole subject very interesting

HASH(0x9445b648) out of 5 stars Good but limited 1 Aug. 2008
By George D. Klein, author, Dissensions - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was referred to this book by a client and anticipated its arrival with great interest. At the same time, another client contracted me to develop an industry-based short course on Sequence Stratigraphy. Consequently, I was hopeful that this book might provide good illustrative material and new insights.

When I received the book, I was, in fact disappointed. The book is well-written, it has lots of illustrations, and the science is sound. However, it is written more from the perspective of an academic researcher and the applications to the petroleum, coal, uranium or environmental industries are minimal. The amount of material on relevant seismic stratigraphy is less than minimal. Moreover, about 1/3 of the book is a sedimentology text and better informtion is available elsewhere.

The focus of the book is outcrop sequence stratigraphy. Subsurface sequence and seismic stratigraphy is downplayed (This is where these principles are applied in the working world of industry). The use of far too many acronyms is annoying. The endless stream of nomenclature makes application of the principles difficult.

For academic and outcrop sequence statigraphers, this is a good book. For those of us working in industry, it is limited.
HASH(0x9465cb04) out of 5 stars Stylistically difficult. 16 Nov. 2013
By Roger D. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
At times Catuneanu is clear, but for the most part he writes in a verbose and convolute manner, as if he would be loathe to write a short sentence. His style makes a difficult topic more difficult than it needs to be. He presumes on the reader too much. As an introductory text, this one is to be avoided—it is simply too labyrinthine. (I have a B.S. in Geology, so I am not reviewing from an outsider's perspective).
This would possibly make a better advanced textbook for academics, i.e. Ph.D. candidates who have had introductory courses in Sequence Stratigraphy.
HASH(0x9fc24a38) out of 5 stars Catuneanu is a reference 7 Oct. 2013
By M. REZENDE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Catuneanu is a modern reference in Sequence Stratigraphy, as Hsü, Posamentier and other were during the 80's, 90's and early 2K's

Stratigraphy is somehow a hard topic, many concepts are too complex such as accommodation rate and episodic process. The book helps to clarify these and other points very important to stratigraphic analysis.

By C. Birch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Writes in a way that is easily understood, something not easily done with a dense and complex concept like sequence stratigraphy. He does a good job of not dismissing other camps (like Exxon) who employ different methodologies, but rather consolidates the different views into one cohesive discussion.
HASH(0x94465a08) out of 5 stars Figures are excellent. Discussion of topics is well organized 7 April 2015
By A M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Figures are excellent. Discussion of topics is well organized. Much like his journal publications this text is a great resource in the instruction of Sequence Stratigraphy.
