Paleontologists have traditionally used fossil data to provide information about the relative age, stratigraphic correlation, and paleoenvironment (notably paleobathymetry) of sedimentary strata. The importance of these tasks remains high, but new approaches and technology have extended the applicability of biostratigraphic data to analyzing thermal maturation and sequence stratigraphy.
