The Bowland Shale (late Mississippian, early Carboniferous) has potential for the unconventional extraction of hydrocarbons in the UK and in equivalent successions that extend across Europe to the Lublin Basin, Poland. The Bowland Shale was deposited in a marine epicontinental seaway and in a basinal setting. This study seeks to characterise the controls (sedimentological, geochemical, biological, preservation) on the spatial and temporal distribution of organic matter in the Bowland Shale within the Craven Basin (UK) and link this to resource potential.
