A salt or carbonic acid, as in limestone, some forms of lead ore, etc.
A salt or ester of carbonic acid. ( 099)
Refers to limestone or dolomite bedrock. These bedrock types result in soils with high calcium content, high pH, and plant communities adapted to such conditions. Noncarbonate refers to sandstone, granite, or other rock types with few carbonates.
Geologically, a rock made up of carbonate minerals (chiefly calcite or dolomite). Commonly used as a general term of mixed sequences of either limestone (calcite dominant) or dolomite (dolomite-mineral dominant) sedimentary rocks where the user does not wish to be specific.
(4) a compound or mineral containing CO3 ion. Common carbonate minerals are the hexagonal carbonates calcite (CaCO3), dolomite [CaMg(CO3)2], magnesite (MgCO3), ankerite [Ca(MgFe)(CO3)2], siderite (FeCO3), rhodocrosite (MnCO3), and smithsonite (ZnCO3) and the basic carbonates malachite [CuCO3Cu(OH)2] and azurite [2CuCO3Cu(OH)2]. Carbonate minerals are important in ARD neutralization.
NEED A DEFINITION. carbonatite (car-bon'-a-tite) A carbonate rock of of magmatic origin derived through partial melting of the upper mantle, generally associated with alkalic igneous rocks. The carbonate material that makes up many carbonatites is in part recycled sedimentary rocks that have been returned into the mantle through subduction based on isotopic evidence.
any mineral or rock which effervesces with hydrochloric (or any other strong) acid to release carbon dioxide gas. The chemical formula must include the (CO3)-2 ion.
Sediment, or rocks formed by sediment, derived from the precipitation of calcium, magnesium, or iron carbonates, (CaCO3, MgCO3, or FeCO3) either from inorganic or oganic sources. For example, limestone or dolomite.
a mineral compound composed of carbon and oxygen such as calcite
rock—Collective term including limestone and dolomite.
Common mineral type consisting of carbonates of calcium, iron and /or magnesium.
Many rocks, such as limestone, contain Carbonate. Chemical formula: CO3
Material, such as limestone, composed of oxides of calcium and carbon.
Any chemical containing the CO3= group; limestone and dolomite are examples of rocks formed primarily from carbonate minerals.
a group of minerals usually consisting of a divalent cation and CO3. Shells and corals are made of carbonate. The two most abundant carbonate minerals in today's oceans are calcite and aragonite, two different arrangements of CaCO3.
A compound formed by the reaction of carbonic acid with either a metal or an organic compound.
salt of carbonic acid; a compound containing the C03 radical; in most uses carbonate refers to calcium carbonate -CaCO3
Minerals containing CO32-, e.g. CaCO3 or limestone.
One of several minerals containing one central carbon atom with strong covalent bonds to three oxygen atoms and typically having ionic bonds to one or more positive ions.
1. A mineral compound characterized by a fundamental anionic structure. 2. A sediment formed by the organic or inorganic precipitation from aqueous solution of carbonates of calcium, magnesium, or iron; e.g. limestone and dolomite.
A sedimentary rock made mainly of calcium carbonate (CaCO3). Limestone and dolomite are common carbonate sedimentary rocks.
Carbonite - A mineral that contains the carbonate ion, such as calcite, calcium carbonate; also a term used loosely to describe limestone.
A general term used to describe a rock composed mainly of the carbonate minerals, calcite and dolomite.
A sediment formed of calcium, magnesium or iron carbonate minerals such as limestone or dolomite.
A compound formed when a mineral is bound to carbonic acid. Carbonic acid may release the bicarbonate ion to help maintain neutrality of body fluids.
Carbonates are compounds of carbon, oxygen and one other element or group, represented in the cleaning field by "soda Ash" which is sodium carbonate (an ingredient of many alkaline cleaning compounds), and by LIME SCALE in dishwashing machines, which is a mixture of calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate (derived from calcium and magnesium hardness in the water), plus, of course, other compounds, food soil and so forth.
A salt of carbonic acid containing the carbonate ion CO32-. Metal carbonates may be ionic or may contain covalent metal-carbonate bonds (complex carbonates) via one or two oxygens
compound containing carbon and oxygen. One example is limestone.
A salt or ester of carbonic acid; the most common form in the Intra-Americas Sea is calcium carbonate (CaC03), i.e., limestone.
A general rock type formed from organic and inorganic precipitation of calcium and magnesium carbonates.
n. (adj.) A mineral composed mainly of calcium (Ca) and carbonate (CO3) ions, may also include magnesium (Mg), iron (Fe) and others; n. rock or sediments derived from debris of organic materials composed mainly of calcium and carbonate (e.g., shells, corals, etc.) or from the inorganic precipitation of calcium (and other ions) and carbonate from solution (seawater). For example, limestone or dolomite. carbonate platform – n. A broad (100s of meters), flat, shallow submarine expanse of carbonate rock, more common in the early-middle Paleozoic. carbonate bank – n. A narrow (10s of meters), fairly flat, shallow, submarine plateau of carbonate rock, more common from the middle-late Paleozoic to the present, e.g., the Bahama Banks.
Relating to rocks rich in calcium and/or magnesium
a salt or ester of carbonic acid (H2CO3); carbonates can combine with other elements to form minerals, for example with calcium (calcium carbonate) or with iron (iron carbonate)
A compound containing the radical CO3+2 or rock composed of carbonate minerals. See carbonate rock.
A compound containing carbon and oxygen; an example is calcium carbonate (limestone).
The anionic constituent CO3 that has two negative charges as dissolved in water or present in a mineral.
A sediment composed of calcium, magnesium and/or iron; or a mineral containing the carbonate radical;
Compound consisting of a single atom of carbon and three atoms of oxygen. Carbonate has the following chemical structure CO3.
The CO32- ion.
A mineral containing calcium carbonate such as limestone and dolostone [LCOTE
