Abstract  

The DSC method is used to characterize diagenetic transformations of porous sedimentary rocks by measuring the reversible high-low inversion of quartz crystals. For this, ten specimens of authigenic quartz from cavities in sand-and limestones have been studied, avoiding any influence of mechanical treatment on the inversion behaviour. The method shows to be very sensitive in determining disordered parts of quartz crystals, using the interrelationship between the degree of structural disorder and the decrease of the inversion temperature. The application of the method for the purpose of prospection for hydrocarbons, sulfides or phosphates is shortly discussed.
