Carbonate Ramps provides an up to date understanding of the most widespread platform type in the geological record. It contains a series of papers on the sedimentology and modelling of ancient and modern tropical to temperate environments where shallow water carbonate-rich sediments are formed. Carbonate Ramps includes new reviews of southern Arabian Gulf shallow water deposits, the Brazilian coast, northern UK shelf, as well as, studies of Tertiary to Ordovician ramp systems. With contributors coming from 8 countries and examples discussed from 13 countries this is a particularly comprehensive book.
