Study of four cores taken across Little Bahama Bank has revealed a facies evolution characterized by general shoaling of the bank margins. Following flooding of an early Pliocene(?) shallow bank margin, a 40 to 60 m (130 to 195 ft) deep fore-reef slope, was buried by a marginal reef and capped by bedded, non-skeletal grainstones. This shoaling sequence represents a change in bank character from a flooded, flat-topped bank with sloping margins, through an atoll-like stage of raised reef rims and deeper interior, to a shallow, flat-topped configuration similar to the present.
