Much of the layering in the sedimentary column demands a cyclic mechanism for its development. Newton's gravitational attraction principle as manifested in the tides provides such a mechanism .The Resonance phenomenon, produced by tides and other excitation sources, are invoked to provide the global ocean tides with the ability to transport and deposit the required amount of sediment. Computer simulations are used to develop an understanding of the events.
