The Oligocene and Miocene Epochs include an important levels within the Cenozoic worldwide cooling that led from a greenhouse to an icehouse Earth.
Recent significant advances within the realizing and time-resolution of weather occasions happening at the moment, in addition to the proliferation of reviews on Oligocene and Miocene shallow-water/neritic carbonate platforms, invite us to reconsider the importance of those carbonate structures within the context of adjustments in weather and Earth floor tactics. Carbonate platforms, as a result of a large dependence at the ecological requisites of organisms generating the sediment, are delicate recorders of adjustments in environmental stipulations on the planet surface.
The papers integrated during this exact booklet tackle the dynamic evolution of carbonate platforms deposited through the Oligocene and Miocene within the context on climatic and Earth surfaces strategies concentrating on climatic developments and controls over deposition; temporal adjustments in carbonate manufacturers and palaeoecology; carbonate terminology; facies; strategies and environmental parameters (including water temperature and construction intensity profiles); carbonate manufacturers and their spatial and temporal variability; and tectonic controls over architecture.
This e-book is a part of the International organization of Sedimentologists (IAS) precise Publications.
The distinctive courses from the IAS are a collection of thematic volumes edited through experts on topics of vital curiosity to sedimentologists. Papers are reviewed and published to an identical excessive criteria as these released within the magazine Sedimentology and a number of other of those volumes became common works of reference.
