Definition The Z3 Carbonate Member is a brownish, slightly argillaceous, dolomitic limestone or coarse-crystalline dolomite, usually known by its German name ’Plattendolomit’ or the English equivalent Platy Dolomite (Visscher (1955) ; Brueren (1959) ). Locally oolites and stromatolites occur within this carbonate Clark (1980) . The thickest development is found in the sub-basins. It gradually thins towards the basin centre; this decrease in thickness is complemented by an increase in thickness of the overlying Z3 Main Anhydrite. Anhydrite beds occur frequently intercalated in the carbonate. In the upper part it may contain thin claystone beds. In the fringe area the member can become sandy.
