Dissolution of carbonate minerals 8. Scleractinian reefs first appeared about 300 million years ago. The topics covered will include the evolutionary history of reef systems and some of the main reef builders since the Cenozoic, the effects of biological and environmental forces on the zonation of reef systems and the distribution of reef organisms and on reef community dynamics through time, changes in the geometry, anatomy and stratigraphy of reef bodies and systems in relation to changes in sea level and tectonics, the distribution patterns of sedimentary framework or detrital facies in relation to those of biological communities, the modes and rates of reef accretion progradation, aggradation versus backstepping; coral growth versus reef growth , the hydrodynamic forces controlling water circulation through reef structures and their relationship to early diagenetic processes, the major diagenetic processes affecting reef bodies through time replacement and diddolution, dolomitization, phosphatogenesis , and the record of climate change by both individual coral colonies and reef systems over the Quaternary. Evaporation and mixing-zone dolomites Thermal convection and large-scale circulation of sea water 8.

Society for Sedimentary Geology: 43. On the resulting platform such as became established. They formed the rim as well as the irregular mounds on the summit plateau. The temporal windows in which accretion has been able to occur in a given place, reflecting sea level at a particular height relative to the present datum, are severely constrained. Today coral reef systems provide some of the most sensitive gauges of environmental change, expressing the complex interplay of chemical, physical, geological and biological factors.

Controls on the Development, Distribution and Preservation of Reefs. Temporal and spatial shifts in skeletal sediment composition. The topics covered will include the evolutionary history of reef systems and some of the main reef builders since the Cenozoic, the effects of biological and environmental forces on the zonation of reef systems and the distribution of reef organisms and on reef community dynamics through time, changes in the geometry, anatomy and stratigraphy of reef bodies and systems in relation to changes in sea level and tectonics, the distribution patterns of sedimentary framework or detrital facies in relation to those of biological communities, the modes and rates of reef accretion progradation, aggradation versus backstepping; coral growth versus reef growth , the hydrodynamic forces controlling water circulation through reef structures and their relationship to early diagenetic processes, the major diagenetic processes affecting reef bodies through time replacement and diddolution, dolomitization, phosphatogenesis , and the record of climate change by both individual coral colonies and reef systems over the Quaternary. Sea surface temperature Sea surface salinity Precipitation Solar radiation Atmospheric and oceanic circulation 9. Where it has been possible, coral growth and reef accretion have been and are sensitive to the signals provided by the environment in the form of changes in water depth, temperature, salinity, nutrient supply, turbidity, and pH acidity concomitant with changes in sea-level itself.

Case studies from the Pacific. Introduction: Quaternary Coral Reefs in Time and Space. However, because the responses of corals to stimuli are commonly site-specific, and the nature of the changes evoked so disparate, it is likely that only major sea-level cycles will provide evidence of a consistent global response in what has been a segmented record.
