Description

Backscattered electron microscopy, in tandem with energy dispersive X-ray analysis, reveals evidence that multiple processes work in tandem to generate tafoni development in Oman, Papago Park and Picketpost Mountain, AZ.

Backscattered electron microscopy, in tandem with energy dispersive X-ray analysis, reveals evidence that multiple processes work in tandem to generate tafoni development in Oman, Papago Park and Picketpost Mountain, AZ. Carbonate precipitation into Papago Park sedimentary breccia wedges apart the host rock, and then dissolves to leave behind uncemented fragments. Oman tafoni also show evidence of carbonate precipitation as a wedging agent, in addition to dissolution of the host carbonate rock and a possible role for organics that occupy some pore spaces.
