Abstract (in english)
   Carbonate fracture cements in limestones have been investigated by fluid inclusion and stable analysis to provide insight into fluid evolution and deformation conditions of the Barrandian Basin (Silurian-Devonian) of the Czech Republic. The fracture strike generally north-south and appear to postdate major Variscan deformation. The most common fracture cement is calcite that is locally accompanied by quartz, natural bitumen, dolomite, Mn-oxides and fluorite. Three successive generations of fracture-filling calcite cements are distinguished based on their petrographical and geochemical characteristics. The oldest calcite cements (stage 1) are moderate to dull brown cathodoluminescent, Fe-rich and exhibit intense cleavage, subgrain development and other feaures characteristic of tectonic deformation. Less tectonically deformed, variable luminescent Fe-poor calcite corresponds to a paragenetically younger Stage 2 cement.
   First metling temperatures, Te of two-phase aqueous inclusions in Stages 1 and 2 calcites are often around -20°C, suggesting that precipitation of the cements occurred from H2O-NaCl fluids. The melting temperature Tm has values between O and -5.8°C, corresponding to a low salinity between 0 and 8.9 eq. wtNaCl. Homogenization temperatures, Th from calcite cements are interpreted to indicate precipitation at about 70°C or less. No distinction could be made between the calcite of Stages 1 and 2 based on their fluid inclusion characteristics. In some Stage 2 cements, inclusions of highly saline (up to 23 eq. wt
