'This programme takes the form of a geology field trip to the Guadalupe mountains in New Mexico. the Guadalupes are an excellently preserved example of a sequence of ancient carbonate shelf deposit...s, which enable us to observe the gross structure as well as the detailed sedimentary make up of a carbonate shelf. the programme concentrates on the most recent shelf sediments - The Capitan limestones - and compares these with what we know of the composition of modern barrier reef carbonate systems.'
