Late Paleozoic reef system
The evolution of reef ecosystem within the transition across the mass extinction
• Early diagenesis of carbonate rocks (Syndepositional dissolution)
• Paleoclimate and its influence on carbonate diagenesis
• Effects of secular variation in seawater Mg⁄Ca ratio (calcite–aragonite seas)
• The origin of chert in limestone and its relation with biological activities
• The relationship between carbonate factory and carbonate platform (or ramp)
• Carbonate factory and its influence on the evolution of carbonate platform’s profile
