To me, this is a huge disappointment, especially in a field like geology, where color is of importance. The book pages have a similar consistency to bible paper with everything black/white. I wanted to throw this book into the fireplace a few times due to no color photographs. Luckily, the book writing is good (and I needed the book).Cited by: Abstract: This book provides a state-of-the-art review in the field of sedimentary phosphates. Information is presented under the following chapter headings: Distribution of phosphorus in nature, Mineralogy of sedimentary phosphates, Petrography of sedimentary phosphates, Chemistry of phosphatites, Mechanisms of phosphate sedimentation and phosphatite accumulation, Prospecting and mining of deposits, and The phosphate Cited by: 1. The Aurora Phosphate District is located in the general vicinity of Aurora, North Carolina (Fig. 1). It encompasses the area of active mining, and it lies within the Aurora Embayment, a Miocene depocenter bounded to the north and south by paleotopographic highs (Riggs et. al, ).

Sedimentary phosphorite is a marine bioelemental sedimentary rock that contains >18 wt % P 2 O 5. While small peritidal phosphorites formed in Precambrian coastal environments, economically significant upwelling-related phosphorite did not accumulate until the late Neoproterozoic and continued through the by: Phosphate Deposits By V. E. McKELVEY CONTRIBUTIONS TO ECONOMIC GEOLOGY GEOLOGICAL SURVEY BULLETIN D A summary of salient features of the geology of phosphate deposits, their origin, and distribution UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON: File Size: KB.   Phosphate Deposits and Mining. Sedimentary phosphorites of marine origin are the most important phosphate deposits, but guano phosphate rock and even contemporary guano (modern bat droppings) are currently mined. Sedimentary phosphate deposits occur near shore, shallow marine environments along the continental shelf. Sedimentary Geology is a journal that rapidly publishes high quality, original research and review papers that cover all aspects of sediments and sedimentary rocks at all spatial and temporal scales. Submitted papers must make a significant contribution to the field of study and must place the research in a broad context, so that it is of interest to the diverse, international readership of.

  The earlier editions of this book have been used by successive generations of students for more than 20 years, and it is the standard text on the subject in most British universities and many others throughout the world. The study of sediments and sedimentary rocks continues to be a core topic in the Earth Sciences and this book aims to provide a concise account of their composition Author: Maurice E. Tucker. The fossil-bearing (cyanobacteria algae, skeletons and shells) sedimentary rocks are potential sources of phosphate, manganese, petroleum and gas. Select Chapter 6 - Metamorphic Rocks Book . GEOLOGY OF PHOSPHATE DEPOSITS OF NORTHERN PENINSULAR FLORIDA By GILBERT H. EsPENSHADE and CHARLES W. SPENCER ABSTRACT Stratigraphic information, fossil collections, and phosphate samples were ob­ tained in a reconnaissance geologic study of uraniferous phosphate Cited by: The source of sedimentary phosphate is phosphorus-bearing rock minerals, among which apatite is the most common. Some is also derived from the weathering of.
