Carbonate margin, slope, and basinal depositional environments, and their transitions, are highly dynamic and heterogeneous components of carbonate platform systems. Carbonate slopes are of particular interest because they form repositories for volumetrically significant amounts of sediment produced from nearly all carbonate environments, and they form the links between shallow-water carbonate platform settings where prevailing in situ factories reside and their equivalent deeper-water settings dominated by resedimentation processes (e.g., Everts and Reijmer 1995, Playton et al. 2010). Slope environments also provide an extensive stratigraphic record that, although it is preserved differently than platform-top or basinal strata, can be utilized to...
