Origin of solution seams and flaser structure in upper cretaceous chalks of southern England

Abstract:

Flaser chalks consist of small ellipsoidal bodies or lenses of relatively pure chalk surrounded by clay-rich solution seams. The latter may be simple, individual clay partings or composite aggregations of clay partings. These flaser structures formed during late burial diagenesis in response to mechanical compaction and pressure dissolution of calcium carbonate. Dissolution preferentially affected the coccolith-rich, fine-grained matrix of the flaser chalks, leaving coarser skeletal particles...
