about

Cretaceous Sea Level Risedelves into the question of whether the observed short-term sea-level changes are regional (tectonic) or global (eustatic) and determines their possible relation to climate cycles; to assess the role of feedback mechanisms, i.e. thermal expansion/contraction of seawater, subsidence due to loading by water, changing vegetation of the Earth System and to investigate the relation of sea-level highs and lows to ocean anoxia and oxidation events, represented by black shales and oceanic red beds, and to evaluate the evidence for ephemeral glacial episodes or other climate events.

Though research has been, and is being, conducted in these fields since the introduction of sea level cycles and sequence development concepts in the 1970"s, the available information is scattered.Cretaceous Sea Level Risepresents the current understanding and future directions of the research on Cretaceous sea level cycles in a single source, forming a reference work for beginners, graduates and postgraduates who are interested in this subject.



  • Authored by an expert in Sea Level Rise, with over 15 years experience
  • Concludes with a section that looks to the future of sea level change
  • The only source to combine the current understanding and future directions of the research on Cretaceous sea level cycles in one place
Dr.Mu. Ramkumar obtained his B.Sc. and Ph.D. from National College, Bharathidasan University, masters in geology from Annamalai University. His research interests range from Recent-Paleozoic depositional systems and integrated sequence-chemostratigraphy, and basin evolution. He has published about 100 articles author of 5 books (Cretac...
