Abstract

The formation of saline sediments in ancient basins, as in present-day basins, was characterized by development in stages, which led to a systematic change, in the course of time, from carbonate sediments to sulfate and from sulfate to chloride. As a result, salt deposits of the early epochs are now seen as groups of rocks systematically related to each other both vertically and in areal distribution. This association of intimately related rocks (physicochemically) is a classic example of a formation in the facies-genetic sense, as described in Vol. 1 of this monograph.
