In the summer of 1989, the geolical association of canada asked us whether it was worthwhilw to reprint the second edition of facies models. Most of the authors felt that the world of sedimentary geology had changed dramatically since the second edition was published in 1984. Rewriting rather than reprinting was necessary. There is how much more information on specific facies. Some fundamental concepts have changed and, most importantly, stratigraphy has re-emerged as a primary analytical tool. Dynamic controls on sedimentation in the from of sea level change, tetocnics, climate and biotic evolution, must be incorporated into contemporary facies modelling.
