Abstract

Well-lithified Pleistocene 'micrites' from south Florida and the Bahamas show significant diagenetic alteration of the lime-mud precursors. Both early calcitization and concurrent early meteoric cementation were significant in producing low porosities similar to those found in most ancient fine-grained limestones.-from Authors
