Calcite-Dolomite Ratios VS. Insoluble Content in the Lockport Formation (Niagaran) in New York State: NOTES

Donald H. Zenger


The Lockport Formation in New York State is a carbonate unit, predominantly dolomite, which extends from Niagara Falls to Utica. Analyses show a lack of correlation between insoluble content and calcite-dolomite ratios, as determined by X-ray diffraction. This result is in contrast with relationships observed in many other carbonate units.
