The Oligocene and Miocene Epochs contain crucial stages within the Cenozoic international cooling that led from a greenhouse to an icehouse Earth.
Recent significant advances within the realizing and time-resolution of weather occasions occurring at the present, in addition to the proliferation of reports on Oligocene and Miocene shallow-water/neritic carbonate structures, invite us to reconsider the importance of those carbonate platforms within the context of alterations in weather and Earth floor methods. Carbonate platforms, as a result of a large dependence at the ecological specifications of organisms generating the sediment, are delicate recorders of alterations in environmental stipulations on this planet surface.
The papers integrated during this specified booklet handle the dynamic evolution of carbonate platforms deposited in the course of the Oligocene and Miocene within the context on climatic and Earth surfaces techniques concentrating on climatic traits and controls over deposition; temporal adjustments in carbonate manufacturers and palaeoecology; carbonate terminology; facies; methods and environmental parameters (including water temperature and creation intensity profiles); carbonate manufacturers and their spatial and temporal variability; and tectonic controls over architecture.

Papers are reviewed and revealed to an analogous excessive criteria as these released within the magazine Sedimentology and several other of those volumes became average works of reference.

2004). During icehouse conditions, the marked contrast of radiant energy levels between the equator and the poles produces a strong difference of surface temperature between high and low latitudes, which would act to enhance atmospheric and oceanic circulation. While the temperature and insolation gradients are likely to increase latitudinal patterns in the global distribution of reef-building communities, a strengthened palaeoceanographic circulation, which is additionally controlled by the global repartition of land-masses, may amplify the effects of longitudinal patterns.
