Sequence stratigraphy starts with what?
Entire pile of sediment in a basin is called what?
The potential for sediment to accumulate is within what?
And there is less of it on where?
Rivers will aggrade until what is reached??
Where is no accommodation space required?
Also, where are the not found?
Why is this?
Where is the most accommodation space found?
A low amplitude short-term oscillation between sediment supply and accommodation space is called what?
Aggradation will occur when what 2 things are equal?
 
But why is this process short-lived?
 
 
When contients are eroded, there will be little influx in sediment to the margin unless what?
What occurs when the sedimentation rate exceeds the accommodation space?
What can this also be termed as?
What type of sequence is this seen in?
What occurs when accommodation space increases faster than the generation of sediment?
What can this also be termed as?
The effects of changing sea levels generally come in two types, what are these called?
HintAnswer
 
What will occur if a ramp falls?
A package of sediment deposited in a distinct time period in a basin is called what?
FSST stands for what?
What is happening to the accommodation space here?

When the sediment of a parasequence slumps down to build a continental slope and submarine fan, it is called what?
What does this mean sediment is doing?
What happens to the rivers to maintain equilibrium?
