Definition The Z2 Middle Claystone Member is a red-brown to grey dolomitic claystone, interbedded with thin anhydrite layers. A distinct anhydrite layer in the basal part can be distinguished separately as the Z2 Fringe Anhydrite Member. In the western offshore sandstone beds may be intercalated. Towards the fringe the amount of sandstone increases. Along the basin fringe, in places with a prevailing argillaceous development, it may be impossible to discern the boundary with the underlying Red-Brown Salt Clay Member with certainty. In that case this unit and the Z2 Middle Claystone Member may be lumped with the underlying Z1 Middle Claystone Member into an informal unit: the Zechstein Middle claystone (ZEFRM). As an example could serve well Nederweert-1 (Annex D-9), interval 2594 - 2634 m below rt.
