Abstrakt

Small, isolated carbonate buildups are a common feature of many Upper Carboniferous-Lower Permian cyclic platform successions whereas larger buildup complexes are mostly confined to outer-ramp and slope settings. The Moscovian (Upper Carboniferous) platform succession at southern Amdrup Land, North Greenland, is unusual in including larger, stacked buildup complexes of limited lateral distribution. The buildup complexes developed as the result of stacking of shallow marine, algal-dominated buildups in areas that temporarily experienced increased rates of subsidence due to tectonic flexuring of the platform.
