The influence of sea-level changes on Eocene coastal wetlands during greenhouse conditions at the southern edge of the proto-North Sea in Northern Germany

Olaf Klaus Lenz , Volker Wilde & Walter Riegel
The sedimentary succession of the Helmstedt Lignite Mining District at Schöningen in northern Germany includes the upper Paleocene to lower Eocene Schöningen Formation and the middle Eocene Helmstedt Formation. It covers the entire Paleogene greenhouse phase including the long-term Early Eocene Climatic Optimum (EECO) and short-term events such as the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM/ETM1) and its gentle demise almost continuously in an estuarine situation at the southern edge of the proto-North Sea. Due to the...
