Introduction to Facies Analysis

  • Erik Flügel

Abstract

“Every facies of a deposition shows well-defined petrographic, geognostic and paleontological properties which can be clearly differentiated from the properties of other facies in the same geological period.” The necessity for interdisciplinary studies is clearly expressed in this definition given by Amanz Gressly in 1838. In facies analysis paleontological, sedimentological, geological, and geochemical data provide the basic information about the sedimentary environment, the lithogenesis, and the biotopes of organisms preserved as fossils.
