Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper describes a computer model based on algorithms that simulate processes of carbonate sediment production, deposition, erosion and redeposition, and sequence stratigraphy of carbonate platforms. We use the exceptionally well-exposed cliff sections through the reef-rimmed Miocene carbonate platform of Mallorca, Spain, to test the ability of our program to simulate an outcropping stratigraphy.
