    • Abstract

       

      Boron content has been determined in the acid insoluble fraction of the carbonate rocks of the Kajrahat formation. Their comparison with the boron content of the shales of known environment suggests brackish to marine salinity levels during deposition. The dolomites register higher salinity conditions than the limestones. The salinity of the basin may have changed at intervals.
