Late Triassic carbonate platform evolution and related early diagenesis and paleokarst phenomena in the Transdanubian Range

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Relationships of the depositional cycles and the early diagenetic and paleokarstic features were studied in the Upper Triassic platform carbonates of the Transdanubian Range. The studies revealed that the nature and intensity of the diagenetic and karstic processes depended mainly upon the climatic conditions and duration of the subaerial episodes punctuating the shallow marine carbonate deposition. During the drier early stage of the platform evolution dolomitization and dolocrete formation prevailed, while in the more humid late stage, microkarstic solution cavities and argillaceous paleosols were formed.
