Sedimentology and diagenesis of lower and upper carboniferous sediments in the North German Basin

Kerschke, Dorit Ines (2016)

158 samples from core material of thirteen former oil and gas exploration wells provided by the Federal Geological Surveys of Brandenburg (LBGR), Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (LUNG), Sachsen-Anhalt (LABG), Nordrhein-Westfalen (GD-NRW), and the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO).
