Summary
Abstract: Distribution of recent sedimentary facies is significantly
different in four closely spaced, isolated carbonate platforms off the
coasts of Belize and Yucatan (SE Mexico). These differences are
largely controlled by variations in submarine topography, which are
likely the result of differential subsidence and karstification from
platform to platform. A variety of depositional styles and patterns ... View entire text
