GEL 109L Bahamas Lab

Organisms produce a large volume of carbonate sediments, so it is important to know what is living in different carbonate environments. James Bishop has assembled these links to the organisms he observed in areas where he collected the Bahamian sediments you look at in this lab. Use these photos to help you interpret the sediments.

Organisms found in modern carbonate environments (e.g., the Bahamas)
