Regional groundwater flow and storage may be strongly influenced by the geologic structure. Carbonate rocks are formed in many different environments and the original porosity and permeability are modified rapidly after burial. Some special carbonate rocks, such as coquina and some breccias, may remain very porous and permeable, but these are the exception. It is the presence of fractures and other secondary openings that develop high yielding carbonate aquifers. One important aspect is the change from calcite to dolomite (CaMg[CO~]), which results in a volumetric reduction of 13 percent and the creation of considerable pore space.
