Quantitative Methods in Stratigraphy: A Multi-Proxy Palaeoenvironmental Analysis of Outcrop and Core Data explores the current advances in technology offering a wide range of quantitative geophysical, geochemical, and spectral methods, which are less expensive, timesaving, and often non-destructive. With the wide range of now affordable quantitative methods, high-resolution sampling, and large datasets available across strata, outcrop research can offer unprecedented potential for outcrop-to-core-to-well log correlation, and subsequent (paleo)environmental analysis while keeping data reproducibility at a high level.

The book first outlines the main principles and applications of stratigraphy and palaeoenvironmental analysis. The chapters then work methodically through quantitative data in stratigraphy, gamma-ray methods, magnetic susceptibility and magnetometry, and diffuse reflectance spectroscopy. Near infrared (NIR) and Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy as well as energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) spectroscopy are reviewed in depth. The text concludes with statistical analysis of multi-proxy stratigraphic data and case studies of multi-proxy analysis.

The book serves as a useful reference guide for geoscientists, academicians, and researchers, helping them keep pace with advances in technology and instrumentation and conduct state-of-the-art research in geosciences.
