Abstract

Due to the work by Erik Flügel, who passed away far too early in 2004, microfacies investigations of carbonate rocks have a long tradition in our institute in Erlangen (Germany). He stimulated several generations of geologists in the field of carbonate sedimentology, and it is a great honor for me to provide a small additional chapter to the present book. The chapter presents examples from a variety of depositional environments and ages. The thin sections have been prepared for the international microfacies courses held in Erlangen regularly since 1974. The chapter has two goals. On one side, thin sections have been chosen which complement the previous chapters, and provide some additional information, on the other, this chapter is intended as some sort of self-test. Before reading the figure captions you might try to study the pictures and build your own interpretation
