Younger Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Tertiary oolitic and oncolitic beds in Slovenia - An Overview
AbstractOolitic and oncoidal rocks, microfacies, depositional environments and their stratigraphic ranges in Slovenia are subjects of this article. Various types of calcareous ooids are present in the Upper Carboniferous, Permian and Tertiary (Paleocene and Miocene) beds and specially at many levels in an up to 6000 meters thick statigraphic succession of the Mesozoic age. Sedimentological investigations have been carried out specially in the Triassic and Jurassic beds. The ooids occurring in the shallow-water and intertidal carbonate environment have been grouped into seven types and oncoids into four types. Oncoids are rather more aboundant in Carnian and Norian/Rhaetian age. Late dolomitization of some oolitic beds is next to cementation the main diagenetic feature.
