THE ENGINEERING GEOLOGICAL DESCRIPTION OF CARBONATE SUITE ROCKS AND SOILS

Most existing systems of carbonate classification tend to use terms that are unfamiliar and confusing to engineers. Any scheme that is to be acceptable in engineering geology must therefore be both simple and unambiguous. This review of carbonate nomenclature will attempt to develop a scheme of carbonate description which is both simple and geologically accurate, and to draw attention to those features of carbonates which may be of engineering significance. /Author/TRRL/
