The usefulness of geochemical modeling in diagenesis lies in the ability to analyze processes that cannot be measured directly in the laboratory, either due to the time element (slow kinetics) or, more typically, metastable equilibria. Important diagenetic process include: albitization (Morad and others, 1990), the illite/smectite transition (Perry and Hower, 1970; Bjørlykke and Aagaard, 1992), zeolitization, development of quartz overgrowths, carbonate cementation (Boles, 1979; Bjørlykke, 1983; Bjørlykke and others, 1989), the role of calcium-plagioclase and other unstable minerals in driving diagenetic reactions (Boles, 1991; Ram-seyer and others, 1992), and the effects of fluid composition on the final diagenetic state....
