Abstract

Recent literature (Evamy, 1967 and de Groot, 1967) has perpetuated the use of the term dedolomitization. The use of this term (1) requires multiple terminology for a single replacement process, (2) is inconsistent with nomenclature for other replacement processes, (3) is ambiguous, and (4) is geochemically misleading. The authors feel that a replacement process should be named by the replacing mineral, not the one being replaced.
