Deposition, Diagenesis, and Hydrocarbon Potential of “Deeper-Water” Limestones
This publication attempts to outline the depositional and diagenetic patters of a variety of deeper-water sediments including pelagic limestones, carbonate turbidites, carbonate bank-margin talus, and associated deposits. Clear distinctions between these various types of units are made, and the differences between pelagic or hemipelagic units and reworked or allochthonous units are emphasized.
