This unique booklet Perspectives in Carbonate Geology is a set of papers such a lot of that have been provided at a symposium to honor the eightieth birthday of Bob Ginsburg on the assembly of Geological Society of the United States in Salt Lake urban in 2005. nearly all of the papers during this ebook are hooked up with the examine of contemporary carbonate sediments. Bob Ginsburg pioneered the idea that of comparative sedimentology - that's utilizing the fashionable to check to and relate to and comprehend the traditional. those reviews are concerned about Bob's parts of ardour: coral reefs and sea-level; submarine cementation and formation of seashore rock; floor sediments on nice Bahama financial institution and different systems; foundation of ooids; coastal sediments; formation of stromatolites; impression of storms on sediments; and the formation of dolomite. the rest of the papers observe the learn of recent environments and sedimentary tactics to old sediments.

Interfaces exist in each geotechnical process in lots of types and at a number of scales. even though traditionally, they can be thought of to be the vulnerable hyperlink in a method, rather because the results of a couple of unforeseen catastrophic mess ups, new perception received during the last 20 years via researchers worldwide has proven that it's attainable to choose combos of fabrics and layout an engineered interface in order that it really is at the very least as powerful because the surrounding fabrics.

3). Ginsburg (1953), Evamy (1973) and many others have shown that the most common cementing agent is ﬁbrous aragonite. In areas of rapid lateral beach accretion, cemented zones are continually buried beneath sand as fast as the biogenic and oolitic grains are created and deposited. In such areas, hidden from view, the continual formation of beachrock proceeds unnoticed. If the beach accretes rapidly beyond some unknown threshold, the sediment is taken out of contact with seawater and cementation is slowed or does not take place.
2), has continued to resonate among alternative thinkers. Since their discovery, made possible after erosion of overlying sediment, the proposition that the stones are man-made and/ or ‘intelligently’ placed by ancient cultures has proliferated and gained credibility. The anthropogenic-origin hypothesis initiated with Valentine (1969, 1976), Rebikoff (1972, 1979) and followed the suggestion of Cayce (1968). Berlitz (1969, 1984) and Zink (1978) related the origin of the Bimini Road to the legend of the lost continent of Atlantis.
