Abstract

Provides the first quantitative data on growth rates of marine carbonate cements in a marginal slope environment. The data indicate that marginal slope deposits may lithify within several tens of years and suggest that "geologically instantaneous' cementation may be critical in stabilizing steep carbonate slope deposits at or above angles of repose. -from Authors
