This book, dedicated to carbonate rocks, approaches sequence stratigraphy from its sedimentologic background. It attempts to communicate by combining different specialities and different lines of reasoning, and by searching for principles underlying the bewildering diversity of carbonate rocks. It provides enough general background, in introductory chapters and appendices, to be easily digestible for sedimentologists and stratigraphers as well as earth scientists at large.Under these circumstances, the migration of facies belts with time is difficult to track and sequences and systems tracts ... during stable sea level are higher than on continental margins because less accommodation space needs to be filled.
