A *.zip file containing four files for Worked example 17.1 from the book Deciphering Earth’s History: the Practice of Stratigraphy, which demonstrate the application of sequence slotting with palaeontological data using the CPLSlot freeware. There are two input data text files (ending in extension *.txt) of the palynological data for the two successions to be correlated, a third file (extension *.sld), which can only be read by CPLSlot, that stores information about correlation and slotting models set up when using the software, while the fourth file, an Excel file (extension *.xlsx), contains the complete workings for Worked example 17.1, and the last processing step of finalizing a correlation model not show in the worked example in the book.
