The Oligocene and Miocene Epochs contain crucial stages within the Cenozoic worldwide cooling that led from a greenhouse to an icehouse Earth.
Recent significant advances within the realizing and time-resolution of weather occasions occurring at the present, in addition to the proliferation of experiences on Oligocene and Miocene shallow-water/neritic carbonate platforms, invite us to re-examine the importance of those carbonate structures within the context of alterations in weather and Earth floor approaches. Carbonate structures, as a result of a large dependence at the ecological necessities of organisms generating the sediment, are delicate recorders of alterations in environmental stipulations on the planet surface.
The papers incorporated during this distinctive ebook handle the dynamic evolution of carbonate structures deposited in the course of the Oligocene and Miocene within the context on climatic and Earth surfaces tactics concentrating on climatic traits and controls over deposition; temporal adjustments in carbonate manufacturers and palaeoecology; carbonate terminology; facies; strategies and environmental parameters (including water temperature and construction intensity profiles); carbonate manufacturers and their spatial and temporal variability; and tectonic controls over architecture.
This e-book is a part of the International organization of Sedimentologists (IAS) designated Publications.
The exact courses from the IAS are a collection of thematic volumes edited through experts on topics of crucial curiosity to sedimentologists. Papers are reviewed and published to a similar excessive criteria as these released within the magazine Sedimentology and a number of other of those volumes became commonplace works of reference.

At a global scale, tends to be negatively correlated with palaeolatitude, independent of the time interval considered. Two parameters were used to test the relationship between the size of buildup or reef-tract and palaeolatitude: the thickness of reefs and their lateral extent. The link between the thickness of reefs and their palaeolatitude becomes obvious from the Middle 24 C. Perrin and W. Kiessling Mediterranean region Caribbean and W.

3). Similarly, the occurrence of buildups that developed below fair-weather wave base at high latitude tends to extend the width of latitudinal belt during the Danian, Lutetian, Messinian and Pliocene. The northern margin of the reef belt is relatively well constrained in terms of bathymetry and dominant reef-builders. This is not the case for Upper Palaeocene to Lower Eocene buildups occurring in the Southern Hemisphere. In addition, the small number of buildups during the Palaeocene and 22 C.
