Abstract

IN our work in Challenger Office in connection with deep-sea deposits, we are very much impressed with the fact that solution of calcium carbonate is going on in the ocean, not only at great depths, but at all depths from the surface to the bottom wherever dead organisms which secrete carbonate of lime are exposed to the action of the sea water, as was recognised and insisted on by Semper, Murray, Agassiz, and others. We are therefore much interested in the discussion going on in NATURE regarding solution in the lagoons of atolls.
