A complete section of an unconsolidated sedimentary sequence about 5 m thick was sampled in the western margin of the Campeche Bank with use of gravity cores. The sequence forms a flat sea bottom at depth of 51-53 m and rests on a consolidated basement composed of coral limestones and carbonate sandstones. Initiation of deposition of unconsolidated sediments in this area is related to a sea transgression caused by sea level rise that followed the...
