Lagoonal to intertidal sediments from the Holocene in Florida Bay, on the Bahamas, and in Bermuda are compared to similar facies in the Kimmeridgian and Berriasian of the Swiss and French Jura Mountains. Dating by 14C permits the estimation of sediment accumulation rates in the Holocene. In the ancient outcrops, the timing is given by cyclostratigraphic analysis. Elementary depositional...
