The concept of “Carbonate Factory” was introduced to describe areas of carbonate production and accumulation. In this paper, the “Ooid Factories” is used to analyze extensive Griesbachian (Triassic) oolite deposits in South China that, along with microbialites and lime-mud deposits from different carbonate depositional environments.
