This oversimplification or rule of thumb doesn't always apply. For example, ooid sands, which characteristically form on highly-agitated shoals, may also accumulate on beaches, islands, sand flats, deltas and even turbidite fans. Thus, while most carbonate geologists will use grain types to make an interpretation of depositional setting they should further test their hypothesis using the other criteria listed above.
Carbonate sedimentary particles may be subdivided into micrite lime mud and sand-sized grains. The grains can be separated on the basis of their shape and internal structure and can be subdivided into two major groups: skeletal and non-skeletal. Useful carbonate Texts Most sedimentological texts will help you gain an understanding of carbonates, their depositional system s, facies and diagenesis.
