Model of facies

The open water facies
association was deposited in calm bodies of water that ranged from fresh to brackish and was generally of sufficient depth to limit plant growth.

Then, a progressive metamorphism in these rocks is marked by the passing of greenschist facies
mineralogy [actinolite + chlorite + quartz + plagioclase (albite) + epidote minerals [+ or -] muscovite [+ or -] calcite] to epidote-amphibolite facies
mineralogy [hornblende + epidote minerals + quartz + albite [+ or -] garnet], and finally to amphibolite facies
mineralogy [hornblende + garnet + plagioclase [+ or -] quartz].
In the chapter on ichnology and facies
models, authors James MacEachern, George Pemberton, Murray Gingras, and Kerrie Bann integrate the biological and sedimentological interplay that results in distinct marine ichnofacies.
There was no single image that was best describes the preserved morphological information, but a collage of the images used together can elucidate first order depositional features that can be used to condition facies
for substantial preservation of the underlying diatreme facies
, and thus of a
The differences in the siliciclastic grain size composition of the Blidene Formation in the Latvian and Estonian sections can be explained by different location of sections in relation to the facies
belts of the palaeobasin.
3) Other syndromes with similar facies
include myotonic dystrophy, Langer-Giedion syndrome, DiGeorge syndrome, and trichorhinophalangeal syndrome.
In order to investigate the geologic factors affecting delta geometry, facies
, and sediment grainsize distribution, a tank was constructed in which small-scale physical models of deltas can develop.
Rubble horizons containing broken rugose corals that are not in growth position are interpreted as wash over facies
that were deposited behind the mound crest during storms.

material from the site has been particularly important in considering the nature and significance of this archaeological entity, and in developing models to explain the rapid transformation of technology and economy which marks the introduction of the Bronze Age in Cyprus.
The Gatesville stratigraphic section is here interpreted as one of transgression from the nonmarine sand facies
of the Paluxy Formation, through the shallow marine, oyster bank facies
of the Walnut Formation.
