In 2012 we lost Jean Jacques Peters, former engineer of Flanders Hydraulics Research (1964 till 1979) and international expert in sediment transport, river hydraulics and morphology. As a tribute to him we have created potamology, a virtual memorial archive whose aim is to preserve and disseminate his way of thinking and his morphological approach to river problems all over the world.This archive provides four modules, each with its specific information set relevant to Peters’ work. Where available and if not confidential, there will also be access to the full text. In dialogue with Peters’ family we continue to make his life’s work accessible.
Carboniferous guide Foraminifera, corals and conodonts in the Franco-Belgian and Campine Basins: their potential for widespread correlation
Conil, R.; Groessens, E.; Laloux, M; Poty, E.; Tourneur, F. (1990). Carboniferous guide Foraminifera, corals and conodonts in the Franco-Belgian and Campine Basins: their potential for widespread correlation. CFS, Cour. Forsch. Inst. Senckenb. 130: 15-30, 6 figs.
In Belgium and adjacent areas, 38 biozones (including 43 subzones) can be distinguished in the interval ranging from the base of the Strunian to the top of Yeadonian. The subdivisions of the Dinantian are based essentially on conodonts, foraminifers and rugose corals. Namurian stages (with the exception of the Pendleian) are recognized by goniatites and, for some limestone layers, by conodonts and foraminifers. Most of the biozones can be found in Western Europe and a large number of them occur elsewhere in the Eurasian Province. Conodonts, foraminifers and rugose corals that can be used for widespread correlation in the Lower Carboniferous have been identified.
