Traditional geological maps need "stratigraphic" units in order to delineate e.g. groups, formations, etc. However, each "stratigraphic unit" consists of a variety of facies. The same facies can occur in different "stratigraphic units" A sequence stratigraphic approach compared to the traditional "stratigraphic" approach leads to a much more dynamic interpretation of the geology and geological evolution of a depositional environment.
