When only some of these parameters are available, a full environmental reconstruction often cannot be made. ... Carbonate particles are not given to considerable transport owing to their easy wearability and solubility. ... showing the palaeoge- ography at an instant in time, the lateral facies distribution can be characterised either by regular facies zones or by a patchwork-quilt-like facies arrangement.
