Classification and Terminology of Zooclasts in old sediments
|January 29, 2013||Filled under Com I||
The Classification and Terminology of Zooclasts in old sediments WG is a continuation (from 2022) of the Reflectance & Terminology of Zooclasts in old sediments WG that was established in 2011 in Porto with the initial objectives to:
- Establish correlations between zooclast Rr vs. bitumen Rr and/or VRr – when possible – by statistical analysis.
- Relate zooclast Rr data to Rock-Eval pyrolysis and other maturity parameters.
- Identify other factors that may affect zooclast reflectance (e.g., block preparation method).
- Refine zooclast nomenclature, if necessary
In 2022 it was agreed to modify the WG and to move the activities related to reflectance measurements to a New WG under Com II.
Currently and for 2023 the WG is drafting a nomenclature/classification of zooclasts to be tested in a Round Robin Analyses.
