During the past decade, work on cool-water carbonates has expanded to become a mainstream research area. Studies on modern and Quaternary deposits will continue to be important- however, there is increasing momentum towards unravelling sediment processes, biota–sediment interactions and diagenetic products in Cenozoic and older cool-water carbonates. Many contributions in this book document Cenozoic and Quaternary carbonates from landlocked (microtidal) water-bodies. These carbonates display important differences in biota and fabric distributions when compared with world ocean examples.

Consequently, the scientific community is now better placed to reinterpret pre-Tertiary carbonates where there is a suspicion that they have developed under microtidal conditions. Some papers in the book provide new approaches to interpreting environmental change within macrotidal regimes and others lay firm foundations for future cool-water carbonate diagenetic research. The aim of the book is to illustrate recent international contributions to cool-water carbonates research, with an emphasis on Neogene and Recent case studies.

Contributions are divided into three sections: microtidal carbonates from the Mediterranean realm- macrotidal examples from New Zealand, Australia and Mexico- and early diagenetic fabrics.Also available:Geometry and Petrogenesis of Dolomite Hydrocarbon Reservoirs - ISBN 1862391661The Palynology And Micropalaeontology of Boundaries - ISBN 1862391602Carbonate Platform Systems: Components and Interactions - ISBN 1862390746
