The presented simulations of the thermal and subsidence history of the study area were calibrated using more than 900 vitrinite reflectance values, including data provided by the industry as weil as own mesurements.
The eroded thicknesses of Palaeozoic sediments are increasing from 2500 m in the northern and the central Ruhr Basin to over 6000 m in the southern part of the study area (northern Siegen anticline, Osteifel anticline).
