Miocene evaporites of the Carpathian Foredeep host an interesting sulphates group of potash deposits, including about 20 sulphates minerals. The study of sulphur isotopic composition of 10 of the sulphates minerals from the Kalush–Holyh and Stebnyk potash deposits shows that only the basal Ca-sulphates (anhydrite) from the Kalush–Holyn potash deposits has δ34S values typical of Neogene marine evaporites (+21.0‰). Potash minerals related to the deposits (polyhalite, anhydrite, kainite, langbeinite and kieserite) show δ34S values from +15.28‰ to +17.54‰, and the weathering zone minerals (picromerite, leonite, bloedite, syngenite and gypsum) show values ranging from +14.73‰ to...

Evaporites Through Space and Time
This book is an exploration of varying approaches to the study of the deposition, diagenesis and stratigraphy of evaporites. The volume includes papers from chemical modellers, who work on the basis of geochemical representations of the formative water bodies, and from basin-wide depositional-stratigraphical modellers, who propose depositional scenarios that are fitted to individual basinal pictures.
Until now there have been only a few studies of evaporite formation that explain the characteristic features we observe in the real rock record. This volume is a collection of relevant papers in which these features are integrated in a realistic manner, based on our new understanding of saline water bodies, to the diverse tectonic, chemical and depositional constraints of their individual basins. In additional there are several review articles that offer oversight and extensive referencing of basins worthy of further study.
This book is a valuable resource for sedimentologists and stratigraphers looking for an up-to-date reference on evaporite deposits.
