Recent Carbonate Sedimentation

  • Erik Flügel


About 50% of Recent ocean floors are covered by carbonate sediments (Lisitzin, 1971). Areas of profound carbonate sedimentation are the shallow seas of the tropics and subtropics between 30°N and 30°S (Fig. 4) and the deep-sea bottoms. Approximately 1/3 of the deep-sea floors are covered by carbonate muds.
