Regional-scale development of opening-mode calcite veins due to silica diagenesis

Abstract:

The formation and distribution of natural fractures in Cretaceous–Paleogene strata in Jordan are strongly tied to diagenetic processes, which in turn reflect the lithology of the host material. Observations collected from subsurface cores show that widespread fracturing began before compaction of the host sediment was complete, based on ptygmatic folding of one set of mineral-filled fractures (veins). Non-folded veins are preferentially developed within heavily cemented layers. Calcium carbon...
