Middle Devonian Reefs of the Edgecliff Member of the Onondaga Formation of New York. T. H. Wolosz, D. E. Paquette. Abstract. Reefs of the Eifelian Edgecliff member of the Onondaga Formation crop out along the Siluro-Devonian strike belt in New York State from south of Book reviews Book reviews The following two papers review Silurian and Devonian European reefs. Riding demonstrates that the major European Silurian reefal development is in Gotland and here four facies are to be found:the Axelsro and Hoburgen are essentially tabulate coral and Stromatoporoid dominated bioherms of moderate to high diversity, the Kuppen and Holmhallar types

In Girvanella-constituted oncolitic packstone and grainstone lithofacies of the Antelope Valley Limestone, ellipsoidal- or well-rounded, Girvanella oncoids along with thick-shelled gastropods (Maclurites and Palliseria) are the primary particles are cemented by columnar calcite marine cement within the normal-graded, thin- to medium :// Rock and biotic facies associated with middle Pennsylvanian (Desmoinesian) algal buildup, Nena Lucia Field, Nolan County, Texas, Bull.

Summary The varied depositional settings in which carbonate accumulate have become better known largely through the exploration for more hydrocarbon reserves and their exploitation in the last 35 years. Though reefs and grainstone shoals have been cited as common hydrocarbon exploration targets and so have been more intensively examined, other carbonate facies from both basin and/or platform ?&pageid=90&6. Several facies have been identified, of which the most conspicuous are the lower algal foraminiferal unit and an upper coral reef unit. About 20 pinnacle reefs have been discovered, most of which are oil bearing. The Intisar ‘A’ reef, a billion barrel field, is 1, ft thick and about 6 km in diameter. Porosity in the coral reef facies is

The study of the depositional history of the Edgecliff reefs is complete. Major results include: the identification of the Edgecliff and its reefs as the product of carbonate deposition in a temperate water environment, modes of reef growth, description of the nature of pinnacle reefs, and the basinal dynamics and distribution of pinnacle :// The Edgecliff Member ol the Middle Devonian Onondaga Formation contains numerous reefs comprised of two distinct facies.

Sandstone facies (Schoharie For mation) not included in Upper Jurassic and Lowermost Cretaceous reefs of the Gulf Coast have only recently been documented.

Their exploration potential, facies patterns and paleocommunities are not well understood. Oxfordian patch reefs developed as a part of the Smackover (Baria et al., ), and Berriasian-Valanginain ramp reefs developed in the Knowles Limestone Reefs and their associated facies crop out for a lateral extent of about 1 km, displaying considerable lateral facies alternation from the reef cores to reef flanks both with respect to their morphological characteristics as well as thickness.

The reef base is thin‐bedded wackestone/packstone with abundant Chondrites (Fig. 5D). Volume: 62 () Issue: 9.

Mesolella (2) Abstract: Development of paleogeographic concepts related to deposition of major units of the Silurian-Devonian carbonate sequence (late Middle Silurian through early Middle Devonian) in the A limestone unit is therefore the product of sedimentation, diagenetic processes, and sequence of diagenetic processes.

For this reason, it may prove more useful to attempt to understand the various diagenetic environments and processes in order to unravel the   The Onondaga– Union Springs contact appears to cut progressively deeper into the Onondaga Limestone from central New York eastward to the Hudson Valley (Rickard, ).
