Modern sequence stratigraphy builds what is called a sequence stratigraphic architecture of a margin or basin. This can provide a great advantage to understanding the subsurface as it can clarify principals that operate on many scales, from the regional basin scale, the individual prospect scale, and the bed-to-bed scale of reservoir characterization. This commentary discusses the foundation for integrating many kinds of data that sample the subsurface at these different scales. Seismic and well log data usually comprise the basic datasets that are required for these studies, but the modern sequence stratigraphy application utilizes geologic, geophysical, and engineering data, seismic attribute, and visualization systems.
