At this stage the coccoliths dissolve at their points of contactand CaCO, is precipitated in the pore spaces, with the result that porosity and permeability are diminished (SCHOLLE,1978).

PERMAFROST When water changes into ice its volume increases.

Chalk is an exception, being made up of coccoliths which tend to take up a horizontal arrangement during compaction. This special texture makes chalk behave rather like clay with respect to porosity reduction and water expulsion during burial. These pelagic carbonates are deposited slowly, and their initial porosity is around 70 %. This porosity is gradually reduced to a value of between 5 and 10 % at 3 OOO m. Very thick chalk deposits may develop undercompaction because of their low permeability, When porosity declines to a levet of 35 % or less, mechanical compaction is replaced by "chemical compaction" (ie.

5 Kaolinite is another frequent constituent of clays. 71 nM. It has better thermodynamic stability than the smectites. The argillaceous phase often encloses complex minerals made up of an alternation of different sheet types, such as illite and smectite, or chlorite and smectite. These are said to be interstratified or mixed layer clays. Relative percentages of the two types of mineral may vary considerably, and they may alternate in a regular or random fashion. Potassrum x..
