By E. Insalaco, P. W. Skelton, T. J. Palmer

Carbonate Platform structures: elements and interactions is a suite of thirteen papers, plus an creation, in regards to the results of organism-environment interactions in smooth and historical carbonate systems, coming up from the Lyell assembly on 'Organism-Environment Feedbacks in Carbonate systems and Reefs' held on the Geological Society, united kingdom. The papers provided right here supply an built-in view of carbonate systems, emphasizing dynamic interactions in any respect hierarchical degrees and revealing the restrictions of uniformitarian analogy in biotically motivated sedimentary structures. chosen case reviews from all over the world illustrate points starting from the genesis of progress materials to altering styles of carbonate platform improvement. The textual content can be of curiosity to sedimentologists, palaeontologists and marine ecologists alike.
Readership: Sedimentologists, Palaeontologists, Marine Ecologists, Petroleum Exploration & construction Geologists and Marine Environmental Conservationists.
