Tutor description

A relatively conformable succession of genetically related beds or bedsets (within a parasequence set) bounded by marine flooding surfaces or their correlative surfaces. A succession of genetically related parasequences that form a distinctive stacking pattern that in many cases is bounded by major marine-flooding surfaces and their correlative surfaces

PARASEQUENCE A relatively conformable succession of genetically related beds or bedsets (within a parasequence set) bounded by marine flooding surfaces or their correlative surfacesPARASEQUENCE SETSA succession of genetically related parasequences that form a distinctive stacking pattern that in many cases is bounded by major marine-flooding surfaces and their correlative surfacesPROGRADATIONAL In a progradational set of parasequences, each parasequence builds out or advances somewhat farther seaward than the parasequence before. Because of this, each parasequence contains a somewhat shallower set of facies than the parasequence before. This produces an overall shallowing-upward trend within the entire parasequence set.A progradational parasequence set can be recognized by the progressive appearance of shallower-water facies upward in the parasequence set as well as the p
