This chapter reviews the stratigraphic and paleogeographic setting of shallow marine reservoirs by discussing the sequences in which they occur, the fundamental variables that control them, their geometries, and common occurrences. Many of the concepts of sequence stratigraphy will be discussed as they apply to these kinds of deposits. The development of unconformities, truncation surfaces, diastems, or ravinement surfaces is of primary importance in exploration for, or development of, shoreline and shallow marine reservoirs.
