Quaternary carbonates in SE Sicily were deposited in seamount and short ramp settings during glacio-eustatically driven highstand conditions. They provide an excellent opportunity to investigate the depositional and erosional aspects of cool-water carbonate sedimentation in a microtidal marine water body. The derived ramp facies model differs significantly from modern-day, open-ocean ramp scenarios in projected facies depth ranges and in the preservation of inshore facies. A sequence… CONTINUE READING
