This study was based on the concept of molecular stratigraphy by which the distribution of compounds in sedimentary sequences is interpreted in terms of its geological and environmental factors.

Focussing on nine Jurassic sequences from the Carnarvon Basin and one from the Vulcan Sub-basin, the study showed this concept allows recognition of changes in climate and sea level, anoxic variations, and the extent of maturation processes.
