003331 Bhargava O N (NO, , 529, Sector 18-B, Chandigarh-160 018) : Carbonate build-ups in the Himalaya : their age, microfacies and palaeoenvironment. J Palaeont Soc India 1997, 42, 19-33.
In the Himalaya, the carbonate build-ups are known from Middle-Late Riphean (Shali, Larji, Calczones, Baxa Group, stromatolitic knolls reefs on platform), Vendian (Basantpur Kunihar Formation of the Simla Group, foreslope-flank facies, Krol E, palaeoestuary, low energy carbonate tidal flats), Early Cambrian (Koti Dhaman Formation, Tal Group, stromatolitic build-ups of sub-littoral lagoon), middle Cambrian (Kunzam Las, Formation, Haimanta Group, algal build-ups, restricted platform to shallow lagoon), Ordovician - Middle Silurian (Takche Formation, Sanugba Group, coral - stromatoporiod, fringing reef)?. Tournaisian (Lipak Formation, Kanawar Group, coral - algal build-ups, restricted platform to? foreslope), Visean (non-carbonate flattened Fenestella build-ups in the Po Formation, Kanawar Group, mid-shelf), Middle Norian (Hangrang Formation, Lilang Group, knolls on platform), ? Reaetic-Lias (Kioto Formation, Lilang Group, knolls on platform). All the build-ups are succeeded by clastic sequences along unconformity, save the Hangrang Formation which is conformably followed by the clastic Alaror Formation.
