Abstract

The flank margin model presented here invokes a water-mixing mechanism to explain rapid development of caves of unusual morphology in the Bahama Islands. The mixing of discharging freshwater with tide-pulsed incoming marine water under the flank of emergent dune ridges may have produced the conditions necessary. Freshwater lens position is controlled by sea level, which in stable carbonate platforms like the Bahamas is a function of glacioeustatic sea level still stands
