Abstract

A study of the literature reveals at least eight ways in which limestone conglomerates may be formed. The following ways are noted and described in the paper: (1) derivatives from some pre-existing rock; (2) by deformation of the laminae; (3) by pebbles derived from concretions; (4) by the secretions of limestone nodules by algae; (5) by the breaking of thin layers of limestone by storm waves; (6) by subaquatic gliding of limestone layers ; (7) by lime-mud being cracked on a tidal beach; (8) by minor oscillations of the sea and the erosion of materials previously deposited.
