... series of sections observed in this way provides a clear impression of the test's internal organisation, and provides an excellent opportunity to relate random two-dimensional sections to the complete structure. Thin sections are prepared by coring the selected specimen from the limestone by means...

... of the two disaggregation techniques must be inherent to the treatment, as the two sub-samples were obtained from the same sample. In many basins, recovering foraminifera from indurated limestones poses considerable problems. Traditional techniques such as simple water soaking or methods using...

...Alice E. Kennedy; Angela L. Coe Abstract Microfossil extraction from indurated mudrocks is widely acknowledged as challenging, especially for foraminifera. Here we report development of the freeze–thaw extraction method through the addition of rapid heating, detergent and ultrasound stages. We use...

... phases in the Quaternary, and sea level reached approximately similar positions at the limit of each transgression. During marine phases, indurated limestones at the shore were beveled by marine erosion to form tidal terraces and seacliffs; locally, these limestones were overlain by marine sediments...

.... Calcrete caps on some sand-flat bodies suggest that they filled prior to the main lowstand phase of paleosol development. A complex relationship is apparent between channel or valley fills and mature paleosols that bound sequences. Resistant substrates (coals, indurated limestones) influenced channel-body...

... sample depends on the clay content of the sample and its induration. In this method the processing time varies from 30 minutes for shales up to eight hours for micrites. Until recently it was impossible to extract calcareous microfossils from micritic limestone. Studies by Lethiers and Crasquin...

... of induration of Palaeogene limestones in Denmark. Fracture intensity is also indicated. Moduli of elasticity calculated from acoustic velocities are systematically related to density (and thus porosity), so we have attempted to relate the degree of induration to the dynamic moduli of elasticity. The dynamic...

The post-Laramide sequence is dominated by fine-grained, generally poorly indurated volcaniclastic debris and often is mapped as the Browns Park Formation (e.g., Montagne, 1991 ). Biostratigraphically informative fossils from these patches in the Hanna Basin, however, have yet...

... to form the units of the Miami Limestone. The eastern slope of the unstable oölite mound of the Cat Cay and Sandy Cay area is cut by tidal channels which run normal to the direction of the mound itself. Narrow valleys, similar to these channels, can be found in the indurated rock of the oölitic facies...

First, root mats spreading out laterally within the host limestone enhance dissolution of limestone and subsequent reprecipitation of carbonate cements. These processes result in well indurated...
