    Keywords : Waukesha Lagerstätte; Silurian; soft-tissue preservation; Palaeoscolecida; Annelida; Arthropoda Waukesha Lagerstätte; silur; mjukvävnadsbevaring; Arthropoda; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The lower Silurian Waukesha Lagerstätte of Wisconsin, USA, is a Konservat-Lagerstätte which has yielded a diverse assemblage of exceptionally well-preserved soft-bodied organisms. This study comprises first-hand descriptions and assessments of 23 enigmatic worm-like specimens from the Waukesha Lagerstätte, alongside a literature review. READ MORE

  2. 2. Stratigraphy, sedimentology and geophysical assessment of the early Silurian Halla and Klinteberg formations, Altajme core, Gotland, Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen

    Author : Christopher Artursson; [2018]
    Keywords : Gotland; gamma ray; stratigraphy; carbonate sedimentology; drill core; Altajme; Ala-Fjäle; Klinteberg Formation; geophysical survey; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The Altajme drillcore was recovered from near Buttle in central Gotland in 2015. The core was drilled in outcrop belt of the late Wenlock (Silurian) Klinteberg Formation as a result from an international drilling campaign between the Department of Geology at Lund University and Iowa University, USA.

  3. 3. Carbonate sedimentology and carbon isotope stratigraphy of the Tallbacken-1 core, early Wenlock Slite Group, Gotland, Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen

    Author : Jan Radomski; [2018]
    Keywords : Silurian; Gotland; Wenlock; carbon isotope stratigraphy; Slite Group; Hangvar Formation; sea level; carbonate platform; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Den mer än 700 m mäktiga lagerföljden på Gotland är erosionsresterna av vidsträckta karbonatplattformar som bildades i den Baltiska bassängen under silurperioden. Detta arbete fokuserar på stratigrafin och bergarterna i borrkärnan Tallbacken-1 som togs upp vid Stora Vede av Sveriges geologiska undersökning år 2006. READ MORE

  4. 4. A geophysical survey (TEM; ERT) of the Punata alluvial fan, Bolivia

    Author : Joakim Mårdh; [2017]
    Keywords : electromagnetic; geophysics; TEM; Punata; alluvial fan; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The Punata alluvial fan, situated in central Bolivia (Valle Alto) between the Altiplano and the lowlands, is an important aquifer for the local rural population. Due to rapid development and population growth in the area, the demand for fresh water has increased in recent year. READ MORE

  5. 5. Pressure-Temperature-time Constraints on the Deep Subduction of the Seve Nappe Complex in Jämtland and southern Västerbotten, Scandinavian Caledonides

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Johanna Holmberg; [2017]
    Keywords : Seve Nappe Complex; COSC-1; Raman spectroscopy; QuiG barometry; kyanite-garnet gneiss; Lu-Hf garnet geochronology; Seveskollan; COSC-1; Raman spektroskopering; QuiG barometri; kyanit-granatförande gnejs; Lu-Hf granat geokronologi;

    Abstract : The Scandinavian Caledonides are defined by long transported thrust sheets emplaced in a nappe stratigraphic succession onto the Paleozoic Baltica platform, as a result of the collision between the paleo-continents Baltica and Laurentia. This Palaeozoic collisional orogen is nowadays exposed at mid-crustal levels, thus provides an excellent ground for in situ studies of mountain building processes. READ MORE
