Tresch, Jonas ; Strasser, André

In: Swiss Journal of Geosciences, 2011, vol. 104, no. 2, p. 299-322

Sediment production and accumulation on shallow carbonate platforms are controlled by allogenic, externally controlled processes (such as sea level, climate, and/or platform-wide subsidence patterns) as well as by autogenic factors that are inherent to the sedimentary system (such as lateral migration of sediment bodies). The challenge is to determine how and in which proportion these...
