Driveway Installations in Chalk

Chalk is a soft, white, porous, sedimentary carbonate rock, a form of limestone composed of the mineral calcite. Calcite is an ionic salt called calcium carbonate or CaCO3. It forms under reasonably deep marine conditions from the gradual addition of minute calcite shells (coccoliths) shed from micro-organisms called coccolithophores. Flint (a type of chert) is very common as bands parallel to the bedding or as nodules embedded in chalk. It is probably derived from sponge spicules or extra siliceous organisms as water is expelled upwards during compaction. Flint is often deposited on the order of larger fossils such as Echinoidea which may be silicified (i.e. replaced molecule by molecule by flint).

Chalk, as seen in Cretaceous deposits of Western Europe, is odd among sedimentary limestones in the thickness of the beds. Most cliffs of chalk have totally few obvious bedding planes unlike most thick sequences of limestone such as the Carboniferous Limestone or the Jurassic oolitic limestones. This may indicate enormously stable conditions greater than tens of millions of years.

Chalk has greater resistance to weathering and slumping than the clays bearing in mind which it is usually associated, thus forming tall, steep cliffs where chalk ridges meet the sea. Chalk hills, known as chalk downland, usually form where bands of chalk attain the surface at an angle, so forming a scarp slope. Because chalk is capably jointed it can maintain a large volume of ring water, providing a natural reservoir that releases water slowly through ascetic seasons.
