    CARBONATE ROCKS Limestone and dolomite are primarily carbonate rocks. The extent and thickness of Carbonate rock vary and depend on the environment under which they are deposited. The carbonate rock deposited under marine environment has thickness of several thousand meters. Carbonate rocks are highly soluble in water rich in carbon dioxide and dolomites are less soluble than limestone. The soluble properly of rocks gives rise to topographic and hydrologic features. Percolation of ground water through

    Dolomitization – Question C One of the conundrums of carbonate diagenesis is that seawater is supersaturated in dolomite, yet dolomite is rarely directly precipitated in the present day. Discuss the strengths and weaknesses of different mechanisms that have been postulated to explain dolomitization, and why it is important to understand from a hydrocarbon perspective. Introduction Dolomite (CaMg〖(CO_3)〗_2) is found in carbonate rocks of all ages that formed under a variety of conditions, but today

    Type of Rock The rock coquina is originally a sedimentary rock. Sedimentary rocks are made up of sediments. The sediments are formed by the mechanical or chemical activities of the natural activities like running water, blowing wind, glaciers etc. this which causes disintegration and decomposition of the pre-existing rocks. The products of decay are transported to some depositional sites by the natural agencies, where they get deposited and with subsequent compaction form sedimentary rocks (Hefferan

    dictionary a cavity in the ground in limestone bedrock caused by water erosion and providing a place for surface water to disappear. Sinkholes are a slow natural process of erosion. They happen when limestone is a few hundred feet of the lands surface. Sinkhole form when water absorbs soil and carbon dioxide and reacts with decaying vegetation and creates acidic water. It moves in spaces and cracks underground gradually dissolving limestone. As limestone dissolves pores and cracks are carrying

    present due to the limestone geology of the Maltese Islands. One would expect to find Erica multiflor, Coridothymus capitatus, Asphodel aestivus and Anthyllis hermanniae subsp. melitensis (an endemic) on this type of environment. Garigue communities may also exist on karst. The geomorphology of the place coincides with most of the western part of the Maltese Islands. Clay slopes were noted during the fieldwork, and observed to be underlying a band of Upper Coralline limestone. Clay talus forms over
