Delineation of stratigraphic sequences and their component systems tracts in mudstone-dominated successions is challenging due to the relatively homogenous, fine-grained nature of the strata. High-resolution elemental intensity data from X-ray fluorescence core scanning is used in order to develop a sequence stratigraphic framework for the Lower Cretaceous monotonous mudstone succession in the eastern Lower Saxony Basin. The study is based on four drill cores covering the Berriasian to Aptian interval. In addition, carbon isotope (δ13Corg),...
