This IAS Special Publication #27 contains 17 of the paperspresented at the IAS International Workshop on Reefs and Carbonateplatforms in the Pacific and Indian oceans held in Sydney (July1995). This is the first book to summarize the current state ofknowledge about reefs and carbonate platforms in these oceans,where there is a great diversity of carbonate systems in varioustectonic settings. Papers concern both processes operating in reefsand carbonate platforms and case histories (platform and oceanicreef case histories). Case histories range from the LowerCretaceous to modern reefs and most fossil carbonate platformsconcern outcomes from recent ODP legs in the Pacific. The bookcovers a broad spectrum of disciplines related to carbonategeology: sedimentology, geochemistry, geophysics, reef ecology andmodeling.
