LNEG has a Palynology Laboratory and technical and scientific knowledge to perform palynostratigraphy services.
For more information please contact us.

Palynostratigraphy or stratigraphic palynology is a branch of micropaleontology and paleobotany, which studies fossil palynomorphs (spores, pollens, acritarchs, prasinophytes, and dinoflagellate cysts) of geological ages between the Cambrian and the Holocene.
Palynomorph species have a fast evolution and are characteristic over a certain period of time, which allows the relative dating of the samples, making them very useful for the exploration of geological resources. The chemical composition of these organic wall fossils is very resistant, allowing their preservation in a wide variety of environments and depositional facies, useful for determination of the high resolution biostratigraphic age.

We perform the following services:

  • Standardized palynological analyzes;
  • Age determination (high resolution) of all geological ages;
  • Determination of deposition environments and palynofacies;
  • Palinoestratigraphy studies supporting geological models, within the scope of geological mapping:
  • Palinoestratigraphy applied to sedimentary basins with geological resources (coal, oil and natural gas);
  • Palinoestratigraphy for detailed studies of mineralized horizons;
  • Palynological analyzes can be done on outcrop samples or boreholes.

Prices on request. Please contact us.
