About this Book

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Short Courses in Geology Series, Volume 4.

This volume assumes a general knowledge of carbonate mineralogy as well as a familiarity with the general principles of sedimentology and focuses on specific models of carbonate deposition and diagenesis. The general principle of uniformity of process is especially widely applied in carbonate sedimentology. The editors thus focus first on models based on modern settings. The application of these models to ancient carbonates completes the volume.
