Received Novem ; revised and accepted Febru ABSTRACT Cited by: The inhibiting effect that siliciclastic material has on carbonate-secreting organisms has lead to the generalization that sediments composed of mixtures of carbonate and siliciclastic material should rarely form. However, many modern and ancient shelf deposits contain a spectrum of sediments that are of “mixed” by:   Continental margin - Siliciclastic sediments. The continental shelf, continental slope and continental rise, collectively form continental margins, particularly where they form the trailing edge to continents. The sediments accumulating on these continental margins vary between siliciclastic and carbonate, with most areas accumulating.

Presents a selection of some of the recent research activities and developments in the field of continental shelf geology. The book is organised around four major themes: Stratigraphy and sedimentary geology of siliciclastic shelves; Modern siliciclastic shelves: architecture, sea level, tectonics and sediment supply; Nearshore and coastal environments; New techniques in Cited by: Introduction Geologists seldom ask why siliciclastic shelves exist, and how they differ from "ramp margins" (sensu Van Wagoner et al., ), despite the importance of shelves and ramps in petroleum exploration models (sequence stratigraphy) and in hosting petroleum : Roger Higgs. There are a number of similar modern and ancient examples of cross-shelf mixing of siliciclastic and carbonate sediments. For example, Marshall et al.
