Abstract

The Belize shelf is located on the eastern side of the Yucatan Peninsula (Fig. 3.1). It extends along approximately 300 km in a north-south direction and 10-40 km in an east-west direction. The Belize shelf lagoon is a mixed carbonate-siliciclastic rimmed platform developed under a humid tropical climate. The southern shelf lagoon depositional system is attached to a mountainous mainland of the Yucatan peninsula. The main relief features are the Maya Mountains that culminate at a height approximating 1,000 m above sea level.Fig. 3.1
