Seq. Stratigraphy Lect.

These lectures are for everyone's use and education. Focused on stratigraphic interpretations they explain how sedimentary Rocks acquire their layered character, lithology, texture, faunal associations and other properties. They are based in part on lectures assembled for the university classes of David Barbeau and Christopher Kendall and society meetings. They can be used (unless the material is specifically excluded) under the Creative Commons license:  Their titles include:-
