Abstract

The following is a short note reporting preliminary experimental work designed to test the feasibility of simulating early diagenetic changes in Recent carbonates. Two experiments are reported; one lasted a period of 3 months and the other for a period of 6 months. In both cases, samples of Recent ooids, split from a single sample taken from the Schooner Cays tidal belt, off Eleuthera Island, Bahamas, were held in a constant temperature/pressure regime in the presence of standard sea water.
