    Can someonce please explain, in a very simplified manner, what exactly calcrete/caliche (not sure if there is a difference) is, their formation, and their significance is in sedimentary rocks i.e. what it can tell you about the environmental conditions as the sediment was laid down?

    I could explain it.

    But first, what textbook is your class using?

    howdee,

    We didn't use one book in particular. Just many reference books. Don't remember names.. sorry.

    Could you explain anyway?

    Cheers
