...Deborah M. Bliefnick ABSTRACT Holocene carbonate sediments that compose small buildups in the Joulters Cays area of the Bahamas have been extensively altered by freshwater. Sediments, which include skeletal packtones and grainstones, and oolitic grainstones, were deposited in open shelf and ooid...

... (4 m depth) through the ooid shoals of south Cat Cay and Joulters Cays. During our reconnaissance seven weeks later, we observed lime-mud beds exposed in the troughs of submarine oolite dunes and ripples. The mud layers were underlain and locally covered by ooid sand. The mud beds were lenticular...

... Abstract Coring of Holocene sediments in the Joulters Cays area of Great Bahama Bank has revealed five facies. Three facies — ooid grainstone, ooid packstone and fine-peloid packstone — are responsible for the buildup of the shoal. Ooid grainstone occurs in a narrow band along the windward...

...Mark R. Boardman; Cindy Carney Abstract Mud layers have been found within the ooid sands of Joulters Cays and Lee Stocking Island, Bahamas. A 1.3-m vibracore extracted from 4 m water depth in the Lee Stocking tidal channel contains a lower unit of dark brown muddy sand (skeletal rich) overlain...

... strategies in low-recovery reservoirs. The Joulters Cays ooid shoal and associated environments, located north of Andros Island, Great Bahama Bank ( Fig. 1 ), was selected as an outstanding example of a wave/storm-dominated marine sand belt. The regional distribution of modern sediments in the Joulters...
