Abstract

Outcrop and laboratory analysis of the South Wales carbonate ramp validated the model hypothesis that a high rate of sediment transport is likely a dominant control on the development of a low gradient carbonate geometry. Several other ramp examples are also shown to portray diagnostic features similar to the South Wales ramp example, implying significant magnitudes of sediment transport in each case and further supporting the hypothesis that ramps are transport-dominated systems.
