About this book

The present volume continues the philosophy of gathering contributions on diagenesis on behalf of those requiring such periodic literary surveys, namely, academics and practitioners (teachers, researchers, and oil and ore explorationists).

M.R. Farr ...I strongly recommend this book for those in diagenetic research. Geotimes


Contents

Introduction, K.H. Wolf and G.V. Chilingarian; nucleation, growth and dissolution of crystals during sedimentogenesis and diagenesis, I. Sunagawa; early-diagenetic deformation structures in the overburden of the Belchatow brown-coal mine (central Poland) - a predictive tool regarding engineering-geological conditions during exploitation, A.J. van Loon and K. Brodzikowski; development of diagenetic differentiated structure through reaction-transport feedback, P. Ortoleva; smectities and illites including glauconites as a function of temperature and chemical composition, Y. Tardy and J. Duplay; the formation of alternating chalk/siderite units during the neogene in the Black Sea - an example of climatic control of early diagenetic processes, B. Bahrig; formation of stylolites, marl/limestone alterations, and dissolution (clay) seams by unstable chemical compaction of argillaceous carbonates, T. Dewers and P. Ortoleva; morpho-chemical and replacement diagenesis of biogenic carbonates, U. Brandt; multiple dolomitization of the Warsaw and Salem formations - (Middle Mississippian), western flank of the Illinois basin - textural, trace elemental, and isotopic signatures of four types of dolomite - a case study, D.P. Bhattacharyya and M.R. Seely; diagenesis of organic matter, A. Hollerbach and J. Dehmer; postdiagnostic ferruginization of sedimentary rocks (sandstones, oolitic ironstones, kaolins, and bauxites) - including a comparative study of the reddening of red beds, A. Mucke; postdiagnostic ferruginization of phanerozoic (oolitic) ironstones - a contribution to their geneses, A. Mucke and Th. Doering; diagenetic processes associated with plant roots and microorganisms in Karst terrains of the Cayman islands, British West Indies, B. Jones; paleokarst (dissolution diagenesis) - its occurrence and hydrocarbon exploration significance, V.P. Wright and P.L. Smart; subject index; statement about the paper by R.H. Hurst recently published in "Diagenesis III, Developments in Sedimentology 41".
