The purpose of this book is to make available to geologists who may not be specialists in carbonate petrography a volume which illustrates the major grains, textures, cements, and porosity types found in carbonate rocks. Successful hydrocarbon exploration in carbonate rocks is a difficult and complex problem. Carbonate rocks not only have complicated and varied depositional patterns, but also are subject to extensive post-depositional alteration which may radically alter original porosity and permeability relationships.
