Abstract

The Cenozoic fill of the Lower Rhine Basin is investigated with data from industry wells and open- cast mines on lignite coal. The geophysical logs of digitised well data are used to calculate lithofacies logs with a newly developed technique. The lithofacies logs allow the interpretation of shallow marine and continental environments in a sequence stratigraphic approach. In addition, base level analysis with both the lithofacies logs and the geophysical logs provide a stratigraphical frame for environment interpretation, modelling, and simulation
