A revision of reflection seismic lines was carried out. From the analysis of the paleo- and neotectonic structural evolution, pathways for the input of natural substances from the subsurface should be determined. Crystalline Precambrian and overlying Cambro-Ordovician black shales of the Baltic Plate extend further southward than previously expected. The black shales are interpreted as the main detachment for the overlying accretionary wedge. The Mesozoic development of the facies and thickness along the northern margin of the 'German Basin' is studied. A thorough investigation of the seismics reveals a complex structural pattern in the upper layers due to the sea bed morphology and tectonic deformation. The Adler-Kaminen Faultsystem east of Ruegen is the best candidate to be a pathway for upward migration of fluids and gases. (orig.)Also presentet at 4.
