This book is a collection of papers focusing on various aspects of authigenic and diagenetic marine minerals and related elemental cycling. In essence, it belongs to a line of specialized volumes marking major steps of continued international cooperation. Closely following the establishment of UNESCO International Geological Correlation Programme (IGCP) Project 156 (Phosphorites) in 1978, SEPM Special Publication 29 (Marine Phosphorites, edited by Y. K. Bentor) was published in 1980 as a collection of stimulating papers stemming from a symposium on marine phosphorites held at the Xth International Congress on Sedimentology in Jerusalem in July 1978. Nearly simultaneously, a thematic...

Marine Authigenesis: From Global to Microbial
This volume is a collection of 33 state-of-the-art papers focusing on various aspects of authigenic and diagenetic marine minerals and related global elemental cycling. The commingling of the various studies of authigenic minerals in this volume, including the most recent advances in knowledge concerning the occurrence and origins of phosphorites, glauconites, dolomites, siderites, manganese-iron associations, barites, ironstones, and other marine chemical sediments/sedimentary rocks of early authigenic/diagenetic origin, is partly the result of the increasing awareness that there are many overlaps, even direct co-associations, between different authigenic minerals, both in time, space, and genesis. Taken together, this compilation represents a holistic approach towards marine authigenesis that considers the integrated whole more than the simple sum of its parts.
