When quantifying sedimentary processes on shallow carbonate platforms, it is important to know the high-frequency accommodation changes through time. Accommodation changes in cyclic successions are often analysed by simply converting cycle thickness to Fischer plots. This approach is not satisfactory, because it does not account for differential compaction, possible erosion, sea-level fall below...
