Origin of variations in organic matter abundance and composition in a lithologically homogeneous maar-type oil shale deposit (Ge rce, Pliocene, Hungary)

Abstract

Despite having an homogeneous lithology, the largest Hungarian maar-type deposit (Ge rce oil shale, Pliocene) has previously been shown to exhibit substantial variations in organic matter quantity and quality with depth. This heterogeneity is also re ̄ected, in the present study, by large variations in bitumen abundance and composition, for 23 samples from… (More)
