The barrier-lagoon systems (BLS) cover 13% of the coastline in the world (Leontjeev, 1960), but more than 20% in some provinces of China (Zhuang et al., 1989). It is rational to deduce that BLS should also be widely distributed during the geological past. The BLS is favorable for the generation and preservation of oil and natural gas (Shepard, 1960) and have become important exploration target. It is useful to establish the stratigraphie models for the identification and prediction of BLS in stratigraphic sequences.
