The application of chemostratigraphy to problems in modern and ancient environments has a long and successful history. In particular, the use of high-resolution X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometry for studying the elemental content of core and rock at the sub-millimeter scale to understand provenance, grain size, paleoredox state, terrigenous influence, and other aspects of strata is well documented in paleoclimatology literature.
