Rocks in the upper part reflect gradual shallowing as sea level falls. They are particularly useful in subsurface correlation because they are small enough to be numerous in cores and rock chips taken from wells.

Sedimentary basin analysis is a geologic method by which the history of a sedimentary basin is revealed, by analyzing the sediment fill itself. Aspects of the sediment, namely its composition, primary structures, and internal architecture, can be synthesized into a history of the basin fill.
