Abstract


The coral patch-reef of Laisacker (Neuburg a.d. Donau, Southern Franconian Alb) exhibits three facies zones: the reef core consists of reef debris, there is almost no reef framework. The core facies, interfingering with the reef debris facies is built up by fine-grained reef detritus with intercalated coarse-grained layers of partly high porosity (up to 24%). They mainly consist of coral fragments (up to 83%) and reach 0.80 m in thickness. These coarse-grained layers have been formed by storms. The interreef facies corresponds to massive limestones. Destruction of the reef framework was favoured by bioerosion. The high still open porosity of the coarsegrained reef rubble was caused by high freshwater flow rates delimiting cementation and favouring dissolution. © 1987 Institut für Paläontologie, Universität Erlangen.
