The dependency between carbonate sediment production on a carbonate platform and its relation to sea-level changes is discusses here. The topography of the upper slope plays an important role in determining the way in which sedimentation continues during lowstands in sea level. The mineralogy and composition of sediments produced on the platform can clearly be related to those found in sediments deposited in the adjacent basin. Two examples from the Recent are described: (1) Sanganeb Atoll (Red Sea), and (2) Pedro Bank (caribbean). The applicability of the "highstand shedding" principle is shown for ancient carbonate platforms.
