ABSTRACT Great Salt Lake ooids consist of a nucleus grain coated by layers of aragonite nannograins and minor impurities. Most nannograins are elongate parallel to their c-axis and individual layers are composed of grains which are tangentially, normally (radially) or randomly oriented with respect to the ooid surface. This orientation may be determined petrographically or with a scanning electron microscope. Evidence from the Great Salt Lake and other ooid-forming environments that relates… Expand
