Abstract

Replacement dolomitization by seawater has been modelled in order to quantify the Sr-isotope signature in Cenozoic dolomites. In a dolomitized core from Little Bahama Bank, Bahamas, two periods of dolomitization are recognized, one in the early Late Miocene involving Middle Miocene or older rocks, and a second one around 2.4 Ma ago affecting early Pliocene carbonates. -from Authors
