About this book

This special publication Perspectives in Carbonate Geology is a collection of papers most of which were presented at a symposium to honor the 80th birthday of Bob Ginsburg at the meeting of Geological Society of America in Salt Lake City in 2005. The majority of the papers in this publication are connected with the study of modern carbonate sediments.

Bob Ginsburg pioneered the concept of comparative sedimentology – that is using the modern to compare to and relate to and understand the ancient. These studies are concerned with Bob's areas of passion: coral reefs and sea-level; submarine cementation and formation of beach rock; surface sediments on Great Bahama Bank and other platforms; origin of ooids; coastal sediments; formation of stromatolites; impact of storms on sediments; and, the formation of dolomite. The remainder of the papers apply the study of modern environments and sedimentary processes to ancient sediments.

Contents

1. Depth and species-related patterns of Holocene reef accretion in the Caribbean and western Atlantic: a critical assessment of existing models.
2. The mystique of beachrock.
3. A reevaluation of facies on Great Bahama Bank I: new facies maps of western Great Bahama Bank.
4. A reevaluation of facies on Great Bahama Bank II: variations in the δ13C, δ18O and mineralogy of surface sediments.
5. Stable isotopes of carbon and oxygen in modern sediments of carbonate platforms, barrier reefs, atolls and ramps: patterns and implications.
6. A tale of two storms: an integrated field, remote sensing, and modelling study examining the impact of hurricanes Frances and Jeanne on carbonate systems, Bahamas.
7. Rapid recycling and deposition of organic-rich carbonates within the coastal complex of southwest Florida.
8. The paradoxical occurrence of oolitic limestone on the eastern islands of Great Bahama Bank: where do the ooids come from?.
9. Calcareous epiphyte production in cool-water carbonate depositional environments, southern Australia.
10. Microbes versus metazoans as dominant reef builders: insights from modern marine environments in Exuma Cays, Bahamas.
11. Microbial dolomite precipitation under aerobic conditions: results from Brejo do Espinho Lagoon (Brazil) and culture experiments.
12. Karst subbasins and their relationship to cross-Florida Platform transport of Tertiary siliciclastics.
13. Controls on facies mosaics of carbonate platforms: a case study from the Oxfordian of the Swiss Jura.
14. On the allocyclic interpretation of the 'Latemar Cycles' (Middle Triassic, the Dolomites, Italy) and implications for high-frequency cyclostratigraphic forcing.
15. Phylloid algal mounds in the Paradox Basin, southwestern USA: an alternative to the in situ constructional growth model?.
16. The Cincinnati Arch: a stationary peripheral bulge during the Late Ordovician.
17. Reinterpreting a Proterozoic enigma: Conophyton - Jacutophyton stromatolite reefs of the Mesoproterozoic Atar Group, Mauritania.
18. Layering - What does it mean?.
19. Falling-stage systems tracts in tropical carbonate rocks.
20. Early load-induced fracturing in a prograding carbonate margin.
21. Markov models for linking environments and facies in space and time.
22. Evaluating validity and reliability in high-resolution stratigraphic analysis
