Sedimentology and Geochemistry of Dolostones
Sedimentology and Geochemistry of Dolostones - The need has always existed for understanding the processes of dolomitization and the origin of thick sequences of dolostones. This need becomes even more critical because pre-Cretaceous dolostones commonly host economically important deposits of natural resources and fossil fuels. This publication was derived from an SEPM Research Symposium held in Raleigh, North Carolina, on September, 1986. The volume attempts to answer the questions: How have the concepts and models presented in other publications been applied to sedimentary dolomites, Have we gained new insights and awareness into the processes of dolomitization, and many others. The principal message of this publication is, whereas enormous progress has been made in dolostone research since 1965, the subject is ripe for further study.
