Towards a sediment budget of Permo-Triassic successions in the Central European Basin – implications for terrestrial perturbations around the Permian-Triassic Boundary (PTB)

For the first time, we quantified the erosional pulse around the Permian-Triassic Boundary (PTB) over an entire sedimentary basin. Our GIS-based analysis relies on basin-wide homogenized seismic, sedimentary and stratigraphic data of the Petroleum Geological Atlas of the Southern Permian Basin. We calculated sediment volumes, sediment fluxes and sedimentation rates (SR) averaged over the entire basin from isopach maps of the Rotliegend, the Zechstein, the Lower, Middle and Upper Buntsandstein, the Muschelkalk and the Keuper. To separate chemical versus clastic sediments, we analyzed facies maps according to their predominant sediment composition.
