The southwest Florida continental slope is part of the vast, non-rimmed west Florida carbonate platform. Bordering the southern Florida Straits, it has been the site of a thick accumulation of seaward-prograding sediments throughout at least the Late Quaternary. High-resolution seismic-reflection data and sediment cores were collected in order to determine: (1) provenance and dominant depositional processes; (2) how slope development has related to high-frequency sea-level fluctuations; and (3) how deposits compare with other carbonate slope environments.

Nine seismic sequences have been identified, each bounded by an erosional unconformity. All nine sequences consist of seaward-trending prograding clinoforms. Sediments of sequences...
