      An endorheic basin (also endoreic basin or endorreic basin) is a limited drainage basin that normally retains water and allows no outflow to other external bodies of water, such as rivers or oceans, but converges instead into lakes or swamps, permanent or seasonal, that equilibrate through a basin may also be referred to as a closed or terminal basin or as an internal E 1 1] DEPOSITION FROM OCEANIC WATERS: ] Calcium Sulfate Deposition 6 INTRODUCTION ] Salt (Halitel Deposition 9 DEFINITION > Salt Domes O PROCESS OF MINERAL FORMATION BY EVAPORATION ] Potash Degosition O ENVIRONMENTS FOR EVAPORITE PRECIPITATION > WOTICI POIBSII Mine Pl‘OdUCtlOl'1 i) Marine Evagorites > Potash Deposits in Dead Sea

      This paper describes the geological-depositional and environmental characteristics of diatomite. The diatomite deposit is situated in the southern part of the Alayunt (Kutahya) Basin. Samples of 18 diatomites and 12 host rocks were collected from four sedimentary profiles in the spring season. Basement rocks are Paleozoic-aged metamorphic rocks (schist, phyllite, quartzite, etc.) and Mesozoic   A salt dome is a type of structural dome formed when a thick bed of evaporite minerals (mainly salt, or halite) found at depth intrudes vertically into surrounding rock strata, forming a diapir. It is important in petroleum geology because salt structures are impermeable and can lead to the formation of a stratigraphic ://

Thick salt deposits are present in the Middle Pennsylvanian Paradox Member of the Hermosa Formation in the Paradox Basin of southeast Utah and southwest Colorado.

A salina basin is a depression supplied with marine water by seepage and occasional surface Deposition began earlier in the Alberta Basin, resulting in the formation of two salt beds which have no equivalent in the Saskatchewan basin. Later, in Elk Point time, waters moving southeastward were apparently progressively concentrated so that carbonates and anhydrite are common to the northwest, whereas salt and potash predominate to the The book continues an ongoing series of presentations of the geology of Libya, but the 25 contributions herein mostly centre on the Murzuq Basin itself and on nearby areas.
