Gyttja conditions prevailed

“Gyttja conditions prevailed, thus prompting the formation of rich nodular limestone.”–Bechstädt, Brandner.

According to the OED, gyttja is a Swedish word referring to mud or ooze. Here’s the geological definition:

gyttja, n.- A sediment which is typically black, rich in organic matter, and deposited in productive lakes.
