Outline of Carbonate Petrography
In the history of carbonate geology, progress in understanding limestone and dolomite as sediments accelerated tremendously as petrographic data were added to careful field study. There exist various levels of petrographic observation useful in depositional interpretation. Some require more sophisticated approaches and more complex techniques than others; the list below progresses from field mapping and section measuring to microscopic and geochemical study in the laboratory.
