The ichnology of carbonate drifts

Dr Jesús Reolid Pérez – University of Granada

Carbonate drifts are interesting sedimentary environments for understanding past palaeoceanographic and palaeoecologic conditions. Carbonate drifts are typically studied at large scale with seismic profiles or a meter scale by sedimentological analysis, however the study of the bioturbation on such deposits can provide more detailed information about the palaeoenvironmental conditions at the seafloor.
