G4 Carbonate shelves: geology, oceanography and biota

The Great Australian Bight has the largest temperate latitude carbonate shelf on Earth. This session invites presentations on the geological characteristics of carbonate shelves and the biota contributing to carbonate sediments, in both tropical and temperate latitudes. We seek to explore the similarities and idiosyncrasies of tropical and temperate carbonate shelves, and the extent to which they may be impacted by ocean acidification.
