Correlations between bio- and/or lithostratigraphically analysed boreholes provide new insights on the late-early to early-late Miocene depositional evolution of the central Roer Valley Rift System (RVRS) as part of the southern North Sea Basin. This evolution started with a major regression that occurred in two steps, one during the late...

Background. The rich fossil record of rorqual and humpback whales (Cetacea, Mysticeti, Balaenopteridae) is mainly characterized by monotypic genera since genera including more than one species are extremely rare. The discovery of new species belonging to known genera would be of great importance in order to better understand ancestor-descendant...

The mid-Piacenzian Warm Period (mPWP; 3264–3025 ka) represents the most recent interval in Earth’s history where atmospheric CO2 levels were similar to today. The reconstruction of sea surface temperatures (SSTs) and climate modelling studies has shown that global temperatures were 2–4 ◦C warmer than present. However, detailed reconstructions of...

Based on palynologic interpretations, the Oligocene/Miocene boundary was identified in the cored samples of the ON-Mol-1 and Weelde boreholes in the southern North Sea Basin. In both boreholes, the presumed location of the Oligocene/Miocene boundary is marked by a thin gravel bed, which testifies of a hiatus, within a continuation of shelly,...

The stratigraphic position of the lower Miocene Kiel Sand Member of the Berchem Formation in the Antwerp area (northern Belgium) is not well constrained and its depositional environments are poorly known. Due to a spatial limited decalcification front, the Kiel Sand Member is completely decalcified in southern Antwerp and gradually becomes...

Most dinoflagellates are free-living single-celled organisms that inhabit aquatic environments with a mostly organic-walled cyst stage in their life cycle. The evolution of dinoflagellates through their cyst fossils goes back to Middle Triassic. The intricate Jurassic through Cenozoic organic walled cyst taxonomy allows a refined marine...

Based on the re-interpretation of well (log) data this study shows that the Våle Formation was deposited over large areas (> 100 km) in the southern central North Sea Basin (offshore Netherlands). Up to now, the Våle Formation (and the lateral equivalent Maureen Formation) were only described in the nearby offshore Denmark, Norway and UK. In the...

In the Netherlands, the bulk of the Miocene to lowest Pliocene sedimentary succession is currently assigned to a single lithostratigraphical unit, the Breda Formation. Although the formation was introduced over 40 years ago, the definition of its lower and upper boundaries is still problematic. Well-log correlations show that the improved lecto...

Fossielen van walvissen (Cetacea) worden op een aantal plaatsen in de wereld in grote hoeveelheden aangetroffen. De drie belangrijkste hotspots bevinden zich in Egypte (de Fayum), Pakistan (Siwaliks) en Peru (Pisco bekken). Het ziet ernaar uit dat we intussen ook het zuidelijk deel van het Noordzeebekken, in het bijzonder de Westerschelde, in...

Cetotheriidae are a group of small baleen whales (Mysticeti) that evolved alongside modern rorquals. They once enjoyed a nearly global distribution, but then largely went extinct during the Plio-Pleistocene. After languishing as a wastebasket taxon for more than a century, the concept of Cetotheriidae is now well established. Nevertheless, the...

Background: Balaenopterid mysticetes represent the most successful family-rank group of this clade. Their evolutionary history is characterized by a rich fossil record but the origin of the living genera is still largely not understood. Recent discoveries in the southern border of the North Sea revealed a number of well preserved fossil...

Een vuursteen uit de zilverzandgroeve van Beaujean in Heerlerheide lag 30 jaar veronachtzaamd in de stenenverzameling van Hans Erren. Een artikel van Hans de Kruyk over microfossielen in vuursteen van januari 2018 in Grondboor & Hamer startte de ontdekkingstocht naar de oorsprong van deze bijzondere steen. In de loop van het onderzoek werden...

The Pliocene is often regarded as a suitable analogue for future climate, due to an overall warmer climate (2–3◦C) coupled with atmospheric CO2concentrations largely similar to present values (∼400 ppmv). Numerous Pliocene sea surface temperature (SST) records are available, however, little is known about climate in the terrestrial realm. Here...

This paper presents the results of a cross-border study of the Middle Jurassic–Early Cretaceous rift phase in the Danish–German–Dutch Central Graben area. Based on long-distance correlations of palynologically interpreted wells, a stepwise basin evolution pattern was determined. Four phases are defined and described as tectonostratigraphic mega...

The Adana Basin is one of the major Neogene basins situated in SW Turkey with sedimentary successions providing good records of the paleoenvironmental changes that affected the Mediterranean area. Since a detailed biochronostratigraphic framework has not been properly established in the Adana Basin yet, this study will be the first...

The field of provenance analysis has seen a revival in the last decade as quantitative dataacquisition techniques continue to develop. In the 20th century, many heavy-mineral data were collected. These data were mostly used as qualitative indications for stratigraphy and provenance, and not incorporated in a quantitative provenance methodology....

The sand-prone fluvial Delft Sandstone Member of the Nieuwerkerk Formation is the main target for geothermal exploitation in the West Netherlands Basin. Uncertainty reduction in the modelling of permeability heterogeneity and connectivity of the sandstone reservoir units is of prime importance in the low-profit geothermal energy market....

The Middle Jurassic–Lower Cretaceous in the eastern Dutch offshore provides excellent examples of sand-rich sediments that locally accumulated in the vicinity of rift basin margins affected by salt tectonics. These types of deposits are often geographically restricted and difficult to identify, but can be valuable targets for hydrocarbon...
