The sedimentology and paleoenvironment of Quaternary temperate carbonates and their distribution around the northern Hyblean Mountains (SE Sicily)

Abstract

The Pleistocene sedimentary succession around the north Hyblean Mountain margin is dominated by three carbonate units, which are the subjects of this study. The region was selected for study because of the high rate of post-depositional uplift which have raised the sediments into upland areas, now readily accessible along deep valleys. Cases are presented to demonstrate that : a) the carbonate units have significant regional distributions ; b) each unit is tightly constrained in time ; c) the overriding sedimentological controls on carbonate production were climatic, with primary carbonate production being confined to warmer, highstand parts of glacially controlled eustatic cycles. - (NF)
