Knowing where modern carbonates occur, what they are composed of, and what their controls are is essential for evaluating microfacies data. The objectives of this chapter are to summarize the settings and environments in which carbonate sediments are formed and to document which classifications are used for differentiating these environments. Emphasis is placed on the definitions of terms.
