Krakow, Poland, 22-25 June 2015


Carbonate build-ups include a wide range of structures, showing either evidence of framework, or relief, or both. They have been described from such diverse depositional environments as modern and ancient shelves of all latitudes, and from shallow to deep settings. The session will focus on our understanding of build-ups as controlling factors of substantial local geomorphological change and sediment production; on their record and role in respect of the ongoing and past environmental change, and on the phenomena involved in their inception, development, and burial or dismantling. We invite contributions on the sedimentology, paleontology, stratigraphy, paleoecology and (bio)geochemistry of build-ups across their full range of distribution in space and geological time, as a prominent evidence of the continuous interaction between biosphere and lithosphere along the Earth history. This session is endorsed by ESF, through the COCARDE Research Network.
