Cementation rates of detrital platform carbonates and sequence stratigraphic implications

Thomas Mann & Hildegard Westphal
Different views exist on the prevalent processes that control transport and deposition of detrital platform carbonates in a sequence stratigraphic framework. While some models indicate that meteoric cementation during sea-level lowstands retards sediment transport into deeper basins, others imply marine cementation during highstands as dominant process affecting the architecture of carbonate depositional sequences. These opposing views are based on observations from the Bahamian archipelago, an isolated carbonate platform with a significantly higher carbonate saturations state...
