Abstract (in english)
   A large freshwater lake formed during the Stephanian B period of the late Pennsylvanian in the central east equatorial Pangaea and covered a substantial part of the continental Late Palaeozoic basins in the central Bohemian Massif. Lacustrine mudstones of the Mšec Member were acquired from two shallow boreholes 80 km apart and were analysed for lamination structure and periodicity, mineral composition and dispersed organic matter, in order to obtain more detailed information on the palaeoenvironmental change with a near annual resolution. Two hydrological states of the lake were identified, including high lake-level periods with dysoxic conditions on the lake floor, under a permanently thermally stratified hypolimnion favouring organic matter production and storage during periods of condensed sedimentation producing an irregular lamination pattern.
