In the Cheile Turenilor (Tureni Gorges) area, a carbonate succession about 150 m thick developed on top of island arc magmatites. It mainly consist of gravity - induced deposits (debris flows, mass flows and grain flows). Coral, sponges and stromatoporoid bioconstructions are associated. Microbolites play an important role, as binders of the intraclastic rudstones/ grainstones facies, as well as of the incorporated corals, sponges, stromatoporoids, bryozoans, molluscs. -- Authors Open Access See Extended description for more information.
