By Derek Blundell, Roy Freeman, Stephan Mueller

A Continent published offers the findings of the eu Geotraverse (EGT)--a specific research of the tectonic evolution of the continent of Europe and the 1st complete go part of the continental lithosphere. The venture produced maps and geologic profiles, alongside a 250 kilometer large swath stretching 4600 kilometers from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean, which shape a 3 dimensional photo of the constitution, houses, and composition of the continental lithosphere of Europe in an atlas structure. the various info that include the maps also are offered on an compact disc (ROM). The dialogue quantity, the maps, and a book containing gravity, electrical, and magnetic box info represent the total boxed set. The paperback dialogue quantity is usually to be had individually.

At around this time, the eastward translation of Africa relative to Europe ceased and began to reverse so that dextral strike-slip began to develop, resulting in a concentration of compression and crustal shortening in the Western Alps and the onset of transtension and subsidence of the Pannonian Basin to the east (Figure 2-6d). Dextral transpressive movement within the Pyrenees slid Spain west relative to France and rotated it slightly clockwise in the final stage of the orogeny. Transtensional stresses in western Europe permitted the development of the Rhone-Rhine-Eger rift system from Late Eocene to Oligocene time.

Densely spaced recordings of explosions at 9 shotpoints provided ample data to derive a detailed cross section of the velocity-depth distribution under this profile. The seismic refraction and wide-angle reflection data were compiled by Luosto and Lindblom (1990). Figure 3-3a shows the crustal cross section derived from these data. The velocity distribution becomes increasingly complex along the profile from northeast to southwest. 1 kms"1 for the mid-lower and lower crust, respectively, and with thicknesses of about 10 km for each of the upper three layers and 15-20 km for the lowermost layer.

7) and it probably predestined the later development of the Central-Viking Graben rift system. The crustal extension accompanying this later development may account for a considerable part of the otherwise exceptional width of the shear. 9 WHOLESALE LITHOSPHERIC TERRANES OR AN OROGENIC FLOAT? The greater part of the English-North German-Polish Caledonides is now covered by the thick sedimentary sequences of the Variscan foreland basin, the Southern Permian basin, the Mesozoic North German-Polish basins and the Tertiary North Sea basin.
