Are spherulitic lacustrine carbonates an expression of large-scale mineral carbonation? A case study from the East Kirkton Limestone, Scotland. Gondwana Research, 48, 101-109. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.gr.2017.04.007

Lacustrine carbonate deposits with spherulitic facies are poorly understood, but are key to understanding the economically important “Pre-Salt” Mesozoic strata of the South Atlantic. A major barrier to research into these unique and spectacular facie... Read More about Are spherulitic lacustrine carbonates an expression of large-scale mineral carbonation?
