      The approach of the book is to document the modern depositional environments of three classical areas of carbonate deposition, each characteristic for a specific sedimentological setting (isolated platform, attached shelf, ramp) in order to assess both the range of physical, biological and chemical parameters and their sedimentary response. subject of a number of carbonate deposition studies; however, as Illing (, p. 2) has noted, the majority of these studies have been concerned with the barrier reef east of Andros Island or with the origin of the lime muds west of Andros. The present investiga-tion was initiated to quantitatively deline-ate calcium carbonate facies on the north-.

      Environment of calcium carbonate deposition west of Andros Island, Bahamas. U.S. (). The objective of this exercise is to interpret the sequence stratigraphy of the Neogene carbonate section displayed on a seismic line across acquired by Western Geophysical on the northwest corner of the Great Bahamas Bank, just west of the coast of Andros Island (Eberli and Ginsburg, ). The geological setting of the exercise is the Great.

On the northern margin of Andros island lies Joulters Cay. This a very shallow stretch of water where nearly all the sand is made of ooids. Ooids are small concretions of calcium carbonate. They form around a small sand grain or shell fragment and create a calcite coating around the grain.

Geology of Saipan, Mariana Islands by Preston Cloud () 7 editions published. Removal of carbon through the precipitation and burial of calcium carbonate in marine sediments constitutes over 70% of the total carbon on Earth and is partitioned between coastal and pelagic zones.

The precipitation of authigenic calcium carbonate in seawater, however, has been hotly debated because despite being in a supersaturated state, there is an absence of persistent precipitation.

General Characteristics • Bimodal grain size distribution (sand and mud) • Organisms are the principle, essentially only source of limestone • Most modern, and by analogy, most ancient carbonates are primarily shallow water .The depositional environment of the mudstone facies was characterized by abnormal salinity or the absence of life-sustaining nutrients.

In low‐energy zones (e.g., inner platform and west of Andros Island), deposition is dominated by fine‐grained mud‐rich sediments.

Mud‐free sediments are deposited in high‐energy areas where strong currents enter the platform; the southern and northern part of the platform, south of the Tongue of the Ocean and at Joulters Cay.
