Ongoing, long-term evolution of an unconformity that originated as a karstic surface in the Late Miocene: A case study from the Cayman Islands, British West Indies.Download
On Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac, karst development on the upper surface of the Cayman Formation during the late Miocene lowstand produced the Cayman Unconformity. On Grand Cayman, this led to the development of a deep, atoll-shaped depression on the western part of the island. The ensuing Lower...
Petrographic and geochemical features of sinkhole-filling deposits associated with an erosional unconformity on Grand Cayman.Download
On Grand Cayman, exposures of dolostones belonging to the Cayman Formation (Miocene) represent an erosional unconformity that has been developing since the late Pliocene (~ 3.6 Ma). Sinkholes that developed during this time have remained open or become partly to fully filled with various...
Variations in climatic conditions from the Cayman Islands through stable isotope and element analysis from corals and sediment cores; a 500,000 year recordDownload
The Caribbean region is particularly important to understanding global climate change and feedback systems because the tropics are the primary source of heat and water vapor for the atmosphere. The Caribbean region, however, is a relatively understudied area in terms of tracking climate change...
