The presence of abundant secondary porosity due to possible subsurface dissolution potential of predominantly aragonitic

In order to determine the type of mineralogy and diagenetic systems of Tarbur Formation carbonates, major (Mg and Ca) and minor (Fe, Mn, Sr and Na)elements measured in this carbonates, and with against plotted of them, were compared whit other different researchers limits that was presented to determination of Aragonitic
and Calcitic mineralogy.
Controls on the stable isotope composition of seasonal growth bands in aragonitic
fresh-water bivalves (unionoidae).
Miocene to Pliocene seasonality of the Glenns Ferry Formation and the older Chalk Hills Formation was estimated previously by a combination of the fish faunas and stable oxygen isotopic analyses of growth rings in an aragonitic
otolith of a sunfish (Smith and Patterson, 1994).

Fish otoliths, the aragonitic
"ear stones" of the acousticolateralis sensory system, are often preserved in sediments where no other parts of the animal survive.
