Description

Carbonate Platform Systems: components and interactions is a collection of 13 papers, plus an introduction, concerning the effects of organism-environment interactions in modern and ancient carbonate platforms, arising from the Lyell Meeting on ‘Organism-Environment Feedbacks in Carbonate Platforms and Reefs’ held at the Geological Society, UK. The papers presented here provide an integrated view of carbonate platforms, emphasizing dynamic interactions at all hierarchical levels and revealing the limitations of uniformitarian analogy in biotically influenced sedimentary systems. Selected case studies from around the world illustrate aspects ranging from the genesis of growth fabrics to changing patterns of carbonate platform development. The text will be of interest to sedimentologists, palaeontologists and marine ecologists alike. Readership: Sedimentologists, Palaeontologists, Marine Ecologists, Petroleum Exploration & Production Geologists and Marine Environmental Conservationists.
