Definitions

  1. Calcareous is an adjective meaning mostly or partly composed of calcium carbonate, in other words, containing lime or being chalky. (Web site)
  2. Calcareous is used as an adjectival term applied to anatomical structures which are made primarily of calcium carbonate, in animals such as gastropods, i.e. (Web site)

Calcareous Mud

  1. These consist of interbedded layers of mud, highly calcareous mud ('Seekreide'), gypsum, calcareous and tuffaceous sandstone and tuffits.

Calcareous Grassland

  1. Calcareous grassland is a form of grassland characteristic of soils containing a lot of calcium carbonate from underlying chalk or limestone rock. (Web site)

Calcareous Clay

  1. They are formed of what is called "Papa." This is a blue, calcareous clay often found with limestone, which it somewhat resembles.

Calcareous Stones

  1. Calcareous stones are readily dissolved in acid, therefore acidic products should not be used on limestone and marbles. (Web site)

Calcareous Soils

  1. Though invasive under a wide range of light and soil conditions, garlic mustard is associated with calcareous soils and does not tolerate high acidity. (Web site)

Calcareous Rocks

  1. Calcareous rocks contain as much as 50 percent calcium carbonate. (Web site)
  2. Limestone is one of the examples of the calcareous rocks.

Hills

  1. The main habitat on these hills is calcareous grassland, with some arable agriculture.

Words

  1. Calcareous soils are relatively alkaline, in other words they have a high pH. This is because of the very weak acidity of carbonic acid. (Web site)

Vineyards

  1. Only vineyards planted in primarily calcareous - clay soils in the hills with suitable slopes and orientations are considered suitable for Barolo production. (Web site)

Organisms

  1. Palynology does not include diatoms, foraminiferans or other organisms with silicaceous or calcareous exoskeletons.

Several Species

  1. Several species are calcareous, meaning that they deposit calcium carbonate and are important reef builders.

Siliceous

  1. At least two kinds are recognized: siliceous and calcareous. (Web site)

Rock

  1. Their vineyards are located in a special area in the Valdobbiadene zone (the best area for prosecco), a glacial amphitheater loaded with calcareous rock.
  2. Skarn A body of rock which is the result of an igneous intrusion coming into contact with limestone or calcareous sediment. (Web site)

Metamorphism

  1. Metamorphism of argillaceous, arenaceous, calcareous and basic rocks. (Web site)
  2. Note how the Anorthite content of plagioclase increases with increasing grade of metamorphism in the basic rocks and the calcareous rocks. (Web site)

Animals

  1. It is able to grind up calcareous exoskeletons of plants and animals. (Web site)

Mollusks

  1. This is usually made of a horn-like material, but in some mollusks it is calcareous. (Web site)
  2. This is usually made of a horn like material, but in some mollusks it is calcareous.
  3. Because of their calcareous shells, until the early 19th century people thought barnacles were mollusks.

Containing

  1. Consisting of, or containing calcareous and siliceous earths.

Lime

  1. Calc-sinter or calcareous tufa is a loose and porous deposit of carbonate of lime, formed by mineral or petrifying springs. (Web site)
  2. The calcareous rock is taken in large quantities to Funchal, to be burnt into lime for building purposes. (Web site)

Soil

  1. See also calcareous ooze and calcareous soil. (Web site)
  2. The soil is a mix of calcareous and limestone contributing to the full growth and maturity of this varietal.
  3. In Vouvray the soil is predominately argilo-calcaire or calcareous clay which produces rounded wines with both acidity and weight. (Web site)

Dolomites

  1. Calcareous rocks (originally impure limestones or dolomites) tend to lose nearly all their carbon dioxide, but pure calcite may survive.

Dolomite

  1. The calcareous host rock is subsequently altered to dolomite and brecciated during diagenesis and karst-formation.

Species

  1. In the High Knob Landform, where calcareous and acid-base stratigraphy is mixed, these preferences will often dictate which species of hepatica grows where. (Web site)
  2. Skeleton, if present, lacks cup (hydrotheca) into which polyp may withdraw (a condition known as gymnoblastic); few species with calcareous exoskeleton.
  3. In species with calcareous exoskeletons, these do not mineralize until the zooids are fully grown. (Web site)

Molluscs

  1. This is usually made of a horn-like material, but in some molluscs it is calcareous. (Web site)
  2. This is usually made of a horn like material, but in some molluscs it is calcareous.
