Overview

Classically orbital cycles have been recognized in pelagic and lacustrine sequences characterized by quiet sedimentation, not disturbed by tectonics. Hoiwever, there is now increasing recognition that orbital cycles do influence climate and oceanography in general terms. There is also increasing acceptance of the possibility at least that the effect should be felt over large parts of the Earth's surface and that orbital cycles may well leave signs in other sedimentary environments that are commonly considered to be dominated by tectonics and eustasy. Containing thirty-one papers from a symposium held at the International Sedimentological Congress in Nottingham in 1990, this volume spans a range of topics from the astronomical theory behind orbital forcing, to field studies dealing with a broad range of sedimentary environments, and to modelling and simulation.


  • State-of-the-art research papers.
  • International expert authorship.
  • The latest research in the highly topical subject of orbital forcing.

Brings together papers presented at a symposium on Orbital Forcing and Cyclic Sequences of the International Sedimentological Congress in Nottingham, UK, August 1990, and a second meeting on the same subject in Utrecht in early 1991, together with other, invited papers. The 31 papers span the whole range of topics from astronomical theory, to field studies dealing with a broad variety of sedimentary environments, to modeling and simulation. Annotation c.
