Atlas of Microbial Mat Features Preserved within the by Juergen Schieber, Pradip K. Bose, P.G. Eriksson, Santanu

By Juergen Schieber, Pradip K. Bose, P.G. Eriksson, Santanu Banerjee, Subir Sarkar, Wladyslaw Altermann, Octavian Catuneanu

Drawing on a mix of contemporary occurrences and certain historic opposite numbers, this atlas is a treatise of mat-related sedimentary positive aspects that one may perhaps anticipate to work out in old terrigenous clastic sedimentary successions. via combining smooth and old examples, the relationship is made to most probably formative procedures and the usage of those positive factors within the interpretation of old sedimentary rocks.

* the 1st complete compilation of microbial mat features/structures preserved within the sliciclastic rock record
* prime quality, complete colour images absolutely help the text
* smooth and historic examples attach the formative tactics and usage of mat-related beneficial properties within the interpretation of sedimentary rocks

1997b). Ripple levelling proceeds during longer-lasting periods of non-deposition or non-erosion, in which the mats have the possibility to overprint the surface with thick condensed biomass. , 2003b). Features derived from metabolic effects Closely linked metabolic and decay processes (Figure 2-2-1) Well developed, highly diverse microbial mats represent ecosystems in which both the upward directed primary growth and the degradation of the organic matter are closely linked via biochemicals which are excreted by the one group, used and transformed by the other (Stal, 1994).
