Carbonate banks in, and on the margins of, Florida Bay and Biscayne Bay, south-east Florida, are intimately associated with either pre-existing limestone topography or transgressed ridges of coastal peat and coastal storm-levee buildings. Carbonate banks in south-east Florida contain four depositional facies and two early diagenetic facies, each of which shows great textural and compositional variation depending on setting. -from Authors
