Abstract (englisch):
This study addresses new paleomagnetic, geochemical, mineralogical, and rock-magnetic data from four drill cores of the western part of the East European Craton, representing mainly siliciclastics supplemented by volcaniclastics and a few basaltic rock samples. The cores comprise Mesoproterozoic samples of 1400–1030 Ma and Neoproterozoic (Ediacaran) samples of 588–541 Ma. According to the magnetic data, the dominant magnetic carrier in basalts is magnetite, while two genetic types of hematite (detrital and syngenetic/early diagenetic) carry magnetization in sedimentary rocks. The characteristic components of the natural remanent magnetization (NRM), carried by the fine-grained hematite (intermediate temperature component [CM]) and the coarse-grained hematite (high-temperature component [CH]), were identified during thermal cleaning. Mineralogical and geochemical studies provided evidence for detrital and synsedimentary/early post-sedimentary origin of fine-grained hematite and suggested hot and humid environmental conditions on the western part of Baltica during Meso- and Neoproterozoic time. Because of a low-temperature diagenetic history, which affected the Mesoproterozoic and Ediacaran rocks of Pinsk 26, Ochrymy IG-1, and Šaškai 2 boreholes, no post-Ediacaran paleomagnetic overprint is expected there. ... mehr
