Facies Development in the Permian Petchabun Basin/Central Thailand

Altermann, Wladyslaw


The present book describes the Permo-Carboniferous sedimentary and volcanic facies development in Thailand. Due to detailed descriptions it may serve as a geological field guide. It is mainly a facies interpretation and paleogeographical reconstruction with references to the geology of adjacent areas in Thailand and SE Asia.
Wladyslaw Altermann was born 1954 in Poland. He studied from 1978 to 1983 geology at the Free University in Berlin. His master thesis, written in 1983, was on the Variscan molasse-type sediments in Central Thailand.
During his Ph.D. work he received a grant known as the "Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes" and also worked occasionally as a photogeologist in South America.
Since 1988 he has been working as a research assistant at the University of Stellenbosch in South Afria.
