How Seismic and Sequence Stratigraphy Have Advanced: 40 Years after AAPG Memoir 26 and 30 Years after SEPM Special Publication 42

In honor of the 100th Anniversary of AAPG, and in recognition of major contributions to the science of basin analysis and worldwide exploration, the ACE 2017 SEPM Annual Symposium will be jointly sponsored by SEPM and AAPG with a focus on the historical contributions, advances in and future of the science of sequence and seismic stratigraphy. This symposium is prompted by the 40th anniversary of the publication of AAPG memoir 26 and SEPM Special Publication 42, both seminal compendiums that captured the rapidly evolving science of basin stratigraphy and global implications for stratigraphic understanding, as well as forging linkages between stratigraphy, sedimentology and geomorphology. The oral session, which includes invited talks from R. Mitchum, K. Bohacs, R. Sarg, H. Posamentier, G. Eberli and a raft of other prominent names in both research and application of these concepts, will be followed the next day with a poster session on the theme on Wednesday, April 4.
