13. Reconstruction - Stage 2
Extensive maerl-fields develop in the northern area, which continue to fill
up the relief. Terrigenous influence decreases owing to the rising sea-level.
Frequency of coralline detritus reflects high hydrodynamic energy. Rhodolith
accumulations and a few coral biostromes occur in low-energy areas. Thin
sandstone intercalations reveal that erosion of high zones is subordinate
compared to stage one.
The nummulitid sandstones of the southern area grades upsection into
Orthophragminid marls/limestones. The soft substrate prevents coralline algae
growth in this area.
