The major lithofacies and depth of accumulation of Mesozoic pelagic carbonate and siliceous formations are expressed as a function of the history of crustal subsidence and of the depths of various dissolution surfaces. This dissolution-facies model may afford a plausible starting point for unifying and explaining the sedimentological evolution of the Mesozoic pelagic sequences.
