Carbonate porosity

These diagrams and photomicrographs track a variety of carbonate porosity types and some of their geologic controls. Some of these diagrams were created by Jerry Lucia, Choquette and Pray; others are ascribed to their authors. Unless otherwise ascribed many of the other diagrams and the photomicrographs were created by Christopher Kendall.
