Cyclic Cratonic Carbonates and Phanerozoic Calcite Seas.
Wilkinson, Bruce H.
Journal of Geological Education, v30 n4 p189-203 Sep 1982
Discusses causes of cyclicity in cratonic carbonate sequences and evidence for and potential significance of postulated primary calcite sediment components in past Paleozoic seas, outlining problems, focusing on models explaining existing data, and identifying background. Future sedimentary geologists will need to address these and related areas in carbonate geology. (Author/JN)
