Özet

In Dombayova graben (Dinar-Afyonkarahisar, western Turkey) a 203-m-thick coal-bearing zone of Late Miocene to Pliocene age was recently drilled. The zone hosts several coal beds with a total thickness of 46 m. Coal samples from the Dombayova field were studied by means of standard proximate, ultimate, petrological analyses, micro-FTIR spectroscopy and Rock-Eval pyrolysis, and organic geochemical analyses.
