Advances in sequence stratigraphy and the development of depositional models have helped explain the origin of genetically related sedimentary packages during sea level cycles. These concepts have provided the basis for the recognition of sea level events in subsurface data and in outcrops of marine sediments around the world. Knowledge of these events has led to a new generation of Mesozoic and Cenozoic global cycle charts that chronicle the history of sea level fluctuations during the past… 
Late Cenozoic history of sea level changes documented from high-resolution seismic data on the Northern Sunda Shelf, South China Sea
In the paper, a quantitative model is presented to estimate the magnitudes of eustatic sea level rises and falls by seismic data in an effort to consider the variables such as erosion, subsidence,
Discrimination of tectonic dynamism, quiescence and third order relative sea level cycles of the Cauvery Basin, South India
Application of integrated stratigraphic modeling of sedimentary basins with the help of sequence and chemostratigraphic methods for improved understanding on the relative roles of depositional
The Bahamas Transect was designed to assess the response of the carbonate depositional system to sea-level changes and to evaluate the relationship between the sedimentary and oxygen isotope records
Leg 194 Preliminary Report Sea Level Magnitudes Recorded by Continental Margin Sequences on the Marion Plateau , Northeast Australia
Estimating the amplitude and timing of past eustatic sea level changes is essential both for the establishment of an accurate Phanerozoic sea level curve and for the interpretation of sediment
Lithostratigraphy, depositional history and sea level changes of the Cauvery Basin, southern India
2 Abstract. The sedimentary sequence exposed in the erstwhile Tiruchirapalli district hosts a more or less com- plete geological record of the Upper Cretaceous-Tertiary period. Systematic field
Silurian sedimentation in East Siberia: evidence for variations in the rate of tectonic subsidence occurring without any significant sea-level changes
Abstract It is widely accepted that major variations of sea-level have occurred in the Phanerozoic. Third-order cycles, 1–10 Ma long with amplitudes of 20–100 m, are of special interest for
Arabian Plate sequence stratigraphy: Potential implications for global chronostratigraphy
The ability to recognise and correlate third-order depositional sequences across Arabia and between Arabia and other plates indicates that these sequences are driven by synchronous eustatic
Chapter 13 – Sequence Stratigraphy and Sea-Level Change
Abstract: The history of stratigraphic correlation and the subdivision of geological time have long been associated with understanding changes in sea level. Sequence stratigraphy can be summarized as
A sequence is an unconformity-bounded body of strata deposited over a single sinusoidal cycle of ‘low–high–low’ relative sea-level change. Sequence stratigraphy is a way of classifying and
Sequence Stratigraphy and Sea-Level Changes in Cretaceous Time
Working Group 1 will concentrate on the record and origin of sedimentary cyclicity in the Cretaceous at time scales of 1–10 m.y., especially on the role of eustasy in the formation of


Pre-Quaternary Sea-Level Changes
While the paramount importance of global sea-level changes has been widely accepted by Quaternary geologists throughout this century, it is only within the last decade that such changes in the rest
Numerical ages of Cenozoic biostratigraphic datum levels: Results of South Atlantic Leg 73 drilling
Six sites were drilled in the South Atlantic during the Leg 73 cruise of the Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP). Hydraulic piston coring at five of the six sites obtained a nearly complete sequence of
DSDP Leg 73: Contributions to Paleogene stratigraphy in nomenclature, chronology and sedimentation rates
Abstract DSDP Leg 73 was successful in determining magnetostratigraphic—biostratigraphic correlations throughout much of the Paleogene. This paper treats three aspects of the data analysis. The first
Late Cretaceous-Eocene nannofossil and magnetostratigraphic correlations near Gubbio, Italy
Abstract Using a modified sample preparation technique, we have been able to establish a detailed lower Campanian to upper Eocene nannofossil stratigraphy in the Bottaccione and Contessa Highway
Equatorial Pacific Seismic Reflectors as Indicators of Global Oceanographic Events
The origin of a series of regionally correlatable seismic horizons in the Neogene sediments of the central equatorial Pacific is examined through seismic modeling and the detailed analyses of
Tectonic subsidence, flexure and global changes of sea level
Tectonic models for the evolution of passive continental margins predict that following rifting, sediments should progressively onlap basement at the edge of a margin as the lithosphere cools and
Relationship between eustacy and stratigraphic sequences of passive margins
It is commonly thought that transgressive or regressive events that may have occurred simultaneously on geographically dispersed continental margins have been caused by worldwide sea-level rise or
Speculations on real sea-level changes and vertical motions of continents at selected times in the Cretaceous and Tertiary Periods
Percentages of continental areas that were flooded during a transgression plotted on the corresponding hypsometric curves may be used to distinguish between (1) substantial posttransgressive change

Knowledge of the polarity history of the Earth’s magnetic field during the Mesozoic stems primarily from oceanic (M-sequence) magnetic anomalies. Certain of these anomalies have been
Paleomagnetic and geochronologic calibration of latest oligocene to pliocene radiolarian events, Equatorial Pacific
Abstract Eight chronologically overlapping piston cores from the central Equatorial Pacific, which range in age from latest Oligocene to Pleistocene and for which the magnetostratigraphy was known,
