"The distribution of numerous trace elements has been studied in a series of reef and non-reef carbonates in order to determine their value as facies indicators. Ni, Co, Cr, V, Ba, and Sr were determined in the carbonates and all found to be significantly more abundant in the non-reef facies. These trace elements and the ratios Cr and Ni, Ni and V, and Ba and Sr may be used as facies indicators."
