requires recession of the glacier from the Lake Erie Basin for lake levels to drop at least 100 m below the Maumee and Arkona shorelines (Fig.
All sequences permit identifying montiforms with bidirectional downlaps that represent the lowstand
fan unit deposited on the basin's deeper area.
within the cycles, the predominance of flooding surfaces and the apparent absence of lowstand
exposure surfaces reflect rapid subsidence of the Cumberland Basin, controlled by active basin-margin faults and salt withdrawal.
from a last glacial maximum (Wurm) lowstand
of 130 m, followed by a rapid deceleration until about 5000 b.
rather than that of Hunt and Tucker, who established the FSST nomenclature and placed the sequence boundary between the FFST and Lowstand
Thus, it seems unlikely that these terraces formed prior to the last glacial sea-level lowstand

system tract is represented by the succession from the reef facies to crinoid--foraminiferal packstones of the inner platform foreslope.
The continuous lake-level record kept since 1908 shows high lake levels until [tilde]1920, followed by a prolonged decline during the 1920s and 1930s that culminated in the historical lowstand
Our interpretation fits well with this revised model because we are interpreting coals and underclays as representing periods of sea level lowstand
marked by the onset of transgression.
The book dispels myths about the importance of sea level lowstand
and provides much-needed clarity on the triggering of sediment failures by earthquakes, meteorite impacts, tsunamis, and cyclones with implications for the distribution of deep-water sandstone petroleum reservoirs.
Sequence stratigraphic analyses have shown that during lowstand
and early transgressive episodes the erosion of continents increases an influx of detrital material into basins, whereas the MS high during early transgression is likely the result of transgressive reworking of high MS detrital components eroded during lowstand
