Eustatic High-Frequency Sea Level Cycles and Habitat Heterogeneity: Basinal-Regional-Global Implications presents the current understanding and future directions of the research on Cretaceous sea level cycles in a single source thus forming a reference work for beginners, graduates and postgraduates, who are interested in this subject and intend venture into serious research.
This book provides a hybrid text book/reference book for beginners, academics and professionals who intend to document sea level dynamics on long-short time scales and resultant habitat and paleobiodiversity changes.
- Presents new and important regional geological knowledge with regard to the sedimentary basins of India
- Provides a one stop shop on high-frequency sea level cycles and fluctuations, and the impact created by tectonics and climatic cycles
- Contains reviews on the current status, case studies and looks towards future trends
