DETERMINATION SOME OF PHYSICAL AND GEOTECHNICAL PROPERTIES OF THE CALCAREOUS ROCKS IN KUFA QUARRY USING ULTRASONIC VELOCITIES (2011)
AL-Khersan E. H. , Khorshid S. Z. et al.
Ninety eight oriented hand samples were collected from five sites represent calcareous outcrop of Euphrates Formation. These sites were chosen as a completed recovery for a region located at Kufa Quarry-Bahar Al-Najaf area / Middle of Iraq, in order to perform ...

SEDIMENTOLOGICAL STUDY OF THE TRIASSIC SOLUTION-COLLAPSE BRECCIAS OF THE IONIAN ZONE (NW GREECE) (1998)
<p>The Triassic Breccias of the Ionian zone are typical evaporite dissolution collapse breccias. Several features indicate the pre-existence of evaporites, while alternation of dolomites and evaporites consist a very cornmon association in the subsurface. ...
