This article is about the current version of DF.

Calcareous ooze is one of the several types of soil that can be found on the floors of deep oceans. Not surprisingly, such layers occasionally contain an aquifer.

Calcareous ooze is a type of pelagic sediment. It is formed by particles of calcium carbonate, as opposed to siliceous ooze, which is formed by the silica in diatoms and other microorganisms.
