Correlation of Pleistocene sediments from boreholes in the Ludwigshafen area, western Heidelberg Basin

Michael Weidenfeller & Maria Knipping
Cores from several boreholes in the Ludwigshafen area were analysed to investigate their sedimentology, palynology, palaeomagnetics, rock magnetics and heavy mineral composition. The preliminary results are presented from the new Ludwigshafen-Parkinsel borehole P35, which was drilled 500 m WSW of borehole P34, to a total depth of 300 m. Correlation between the two boreholes reveals similarities and dissimilarities in stratigraphy, structure and the thickness of the sediments. As a result of core documentation and the...
