Abstract

During the last 15 years several so-called maar-type oil shales have been discovered in Hungary. Pollen analysis indicates that the organic matter consists of planctonic algae, mainly of Botryococcus braunii. The organic geochemical features of two maar-type oil shales are compared. The two maar-type oil shales were formed under similar geological conditions; the above-mentioned differences in the organic geochemical features of the extractable organic matters and the kerogens, however, reflect somewhat different biological and sedimentation conditions. -from Authors
