9781405194624: Tectonic Controls on Carbonate Platform Evolution

Carbonate platforms provide a high-resolution record of sea-level fluctuations, paleoclimatic change, paleoceanographic circulation patterns, and biological evolution, yet the influence of tectonic deformation on platform sedimentation remains poorly understood at a variety of temporal and spatial scales.

This proposal is for a text that covers all aspects of tectonic deformation and its influence on carbonate platform sedimentation. All scales of deformation, from local fault-controlled differential subsidence to long-term, basin-scale subsidence patterns, are described and assessed. The role of tectonics on platform location, platform morphology, internal stratigraphic patterns and facies distributions within individual platforms, is examined in detail, using both theoretical approaches and observational data.
