Summary

This chapter is a case history documenting porosity evolution in lowstand carbonates of originally calcite mineralogy. It is developed from sequence stratigraphic and diagenetic study of Mississippian (Osagean-Meramecian) grainy carbonates from North America, concentrating on oolitic and crinoidal carbonates of the Keokuk-Short Creek-Warsaw interval. The stratigraphic distribution of lithofacies is illustrated in this chapter. Data presented are: porosity that existed at the time of deposition; porosity that remained after precipitation of the last cement predating Pennsylvanian sedimentation (intermediate-stage); the relation between lithofacies and the amount of cementation; and the relation between lithofacies and the amount of compaction.
