Abstrakt

A complete log-stratigraphical breakdown of the Middle Ordovician to lower Silurian shale-dominated succession is presented for the Bornholm–Skåne–Kattegat area in southernmost Scandinavia. A wireline log zonation developed for the onshore Bornholm Palaeozoic shales is extended to include the offshore Palaeozoic shales in the adjacent Rønne Graben. A complete log zonation scheme for the Cyrtograptus shale (late Llandovery–Wenlock) and the lower part of the Colonus shale (Ludlow) is presented including correlation within the Bornholm–Skåne–Kattegat area. The Cyrtograptus shale in the Bornholm area is estimated to be 400 m thick and marks the shift to a rapidly subsiding foreland basin, heralding the Caledonian Orogeny.
