Carbonate muds deposited in peritidal environments have high preservation potential and are abundant throughout the geologic record. Much of what we know about pre-Mesozoic ocean chemistry, carbon cycling, and global change is derived from isotope and trace element geochemistry of platform carbonates. My group is working on a long-term project to address three fundamental questions in process sedimentology and biostratigraphy on the Great Bahaman Bank. Our aim is to apply the knowledge we attain in the modern carbonate environment to our understanding of ancient carbonate stratigraphic records.
