The Seaward Margin of the Belize Barrier and Atoll Reefs: Morphology, Sedimentology, Organism Distribution and Late Quaternary History
DescriptionThis first IAS Special Publication contains the oral presentations from a special symposium on pelagic sediments held in Zurich in 1973. The aim of the symposium was to bring together sea-borne researchers involved with the Deep Sea Drilling Project and land-locked researchers studying ancient sediments.
