"Reefs and Carbonate Platforms in the Pacific and Indian Oceans"

Edited By:
GF Camoin, UMR 132, CEREGE, BP80, Aix-en-Provence, France
PJ Davies, University of Sydney, Department of Geology and Geophysics

Pages: 336
Illustrations: 170
ISBN: 063204778X
Publisher: Blackwell
Publishing date: 1998

This IAS Special Publication #27 contains 17 of the papers presented at the IAS International Workshop on Reefs and Carbonate platforms in the Pacific and Indian oceans held in Sydney (July 1995). This is the first book to summarize the current state of knowledge about reefs and carbonate platforms in these oceans, where there is a great diversity of carbonate systems in various tectonic settings. Papers concern both processes operating in reefs and carbonate platforms and case histories (platform and oceanic reef case histories). Case histories range from the Lower Cretaceous to modern reefs and most fossil carbonate platforms concern outcomes from recent ODP legs in the Pacific. The book covers a broad spectrum of disciplines related to carbonate geology: sedimentology, geochemistry, geophysics, reef ecology and modeling.
