training module introduces and reviews each of the major carbonate
depositional environments on the platform margin, slope, and basin.
Another module entitled “Platform-Interior Carbonate Depositional
Environments” introduces and reviews the major depositional
environments of the platform interior.
the completion of this module, the student will be able to
understand the physical, biological, and chemical processes that
affect platform-margin, slope, and basinal sedimentation;
major platform-margin, slope, and basinal environments of deposition;
3. recognize general rock types that are a product of platform-margin,
slope, and basinal carbonate depositional environments.
