Abstract

These microcrystalline, calcian dolomite cements commonly occur in lithified lime mud crusts, but they also occur in unconsolidated sediments, mainly as intragranular precipitates. The voids in which the dolomite occurs vary in size from minute wall pores in rotaliid forams and endolithic borings to major intra- and interparticle pores. In the larger pores, dolomite commonly forms an isopachous fringe. -from Authors
