Abstract

Cores of organic-rich muds from the tropical meteorite crater Lake Bosumtwi, Ghana, contain laminae of authigenic calcite polyhedra and aragonite needles, as well as scattered diagenetic calcite, Mg-calcite spherulites, and aggregates of dolomite crystals. This example provides a model for the interpetation of ancient lacustrine carbonates from organic-rich environments.-from Authors
