Regional Aspects of Carbonate Deposition
It was customary during many recent years for the Research Committee of the Society of Economic Paleontologists and Mineralogists (SEPM) to sponsor research symposia on special topics at the annual meetings. In addition to the regular Research Committee Symposium presented in 1954 at the St. Louis meeting, a special symposium was also held on Regional Aspects of Carbonate Deposition. This carbonate symposium was organized in response to a special request by H. N. Fisk, who was president of SEPM at that time. During the symposium, special question cards were distributed to the audience and collected after each paper. These questions, together with questions and comments from the floor, formed the basis for the Panel Discussion which followed the symposium. The panel consisted of Moore, Ginsburg, Rodgers, and Walter Bucher, who presented the paper on the Bahamas in the absence of Newell. In addition, two authorities in the field of carbonate deposition, L. V. Illing and R. W. Fairbridge, were invited to join the panel and participate in the discussion.
