Additional recommended knowledge
Calcareous rock also refers to sediments derived near land. The carbon content is high due to life-derived sediments. The farther from land sediments fall, the less calcareous the are, usually. There are of course exceptions. Some areas can have inter bedded calcareous sediments due to storms or changes in ocean currents.
