Gregor P Eberli
Along the slopes and in adjacent basinal areas of Bahamian platforms, periplatform ooze forms the host sediment for variable proportions of carbonate turbidites. In unlithified sections, these turbidites appear as unconsolidated layers intercalated with stiffer ooze. Within an individual turbidite, differences in grain size result in variations in consolidation and physical properties. With decreasing grain size, water content and porosity decrease, and two distinct surfaces develop at the lower and upper boundaries of the turbidite....
