      A good “hard copy” desk reference book is the Dictionary of Geological Terms by Robert Bates and the American Geological Institute Another invaluable source of information for the geologist is the North American Stratigraphic Code.   The stratigraphic code was revised in in part to address problems with the concept and application of soil-stratigraphic units. The commission changed the soil-stratigraphic category name to pedostratioraphic units (North American Commission on Stratigraphic Nomenclature, ).

    The North American Stratigraphic Code adopted the formal terms lithodeme, which is comparable to a formation; a suite, which is analogous to a group, and a supersuite, similar to a supergroup. A lithodeme is the fundamental unit and should possess distinctive and consistent lithological features, comprising a single rock type or a mixture. "Sedimentary Geology" utilizes important research in tectonics and sedimentation and focuses on crucial geological principles. The text covers a wide range of topics, including trace fossils, mudrocks, diagentetic structures and seismic stratigraphy. Contributions from chemistry, physics and structure are drawn upon throughout the book.

The North American Commission on Stratigraphic Nomenclature, charged with the goal of promoting common standards in stratigraphic nomenclature and practice throughout North America, celebrated its 70th anniversary in December, The North American Stratigraphic Code seeks to describe.

The North American Stratigraphic Code seeks to describe explicit practices for classifying and naming all formally defined geologic units. Stratigraphic procedures and principles, although developed initially to bring order to strata and the events recorded therein, are applicable to all earth materials, not solely to.

By design, the North American Stratigraphic Code is meant to be an evolving document, one that requires change as the field of earth science evolves. Related Book Content.

This code of recommended procedures for classifying and naming stratigraphic and related units has been prepared during a four-year period, by and for North American earth scientists, under the auspices of the North American Commission on Stratigraphic Nomenclature.

Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology and Palaeoecology, –   Stratigraphic units: A stratigraphic unit is a stratum or assemblage of adjacent strata, recognized as an unit (or distinct entity) in the classification of the Earth’s rock sequence, with respect to any of the many characters, properties or attributes which the rock may possess.

Furthermore, sequence stratigraphy has never been addressed by either the International Subcommission on Stratigraphic Classification (ISSC) in their International Stratigraphic Guide or the North American Commission on Stratigraphic Nomenclature (NACSN) in their Stratigraphic Code, and this has contributed to the lack of any standardization in.

At the 74th Annual Meeting of the North American Commission on Stratigraphic Nomenclature, 23 September,in Phoenix, Arizona, the Commission voted unanimously to accept the revision of Articles of the North American Stratigraphic Code (North American Commission on Stratigraphic Nomenclature, ), and concomitant changes to Table 2 and remarks in Articles.

In any case, I loved the book. It's a massive compilation of North American stratigraphy ( pages!) an, as such is a wonderful reference book.

I tried using it as a text, but it failed miserably. The book company, at the time, even helped with the sell by offering it to students for "only" $50 a copy.
