Summary:The primary and early diagenetic components of carbonate rocks are commonly arranged systematically in a 'relay' along a gradient formed by one or several environmental factors. Such a relay, if present, can be revealed by the optimization of a matrix of similarity coefficients. The technique presented uses only presence/absence of data. Different types of information can be included (e.g. grain types, sedimentary structures). Disadvantages include the inherent limitations of non-parametric statistics. The importance of the accurate identification of components is stressed. [R.K.H.]
