The tug of relative sea level (RSL), set by climate and tectonics, is widely viewed as the most important boundary condition for the evolution of deltas. However, the range of amplitudes and periodicities of RSL cycles stored in deltaic stratigraphy remains unknown. Experimental results presented here suggest that extraction of RSL cycles from the physical stratigraphic record requires their magnitudes and periodicities to be greater than the spatial and temporal scales of the internal… CONTINUE READING
