A Continent printed provides the findings of the eu Geotraverse (EGT)--a distinctive examine of the tectonic evolution of the continent of Europe and the 1st accomplished pass portion of the continental lithosphere. The venture produced maps and geologic profiles, alongside a 250 kilometer vast 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. a few of the info that include the maps also are provided on an compact disc (ROM). The dialogue quantity, the maps, and a book containing gravity, electrical, and magnetic box information represent the entire boxed set. The paperback dialogue quantity can be to be had individually.

Example text

Plate convergence continued for almost another 100 Ma, turning the Variscan belt into a very wide Alpine-type orogen. The post-collisional convergence produced large-scale crustal stacking down to present lower crustal levels, overprinted by 'Hercynian-type' low pressure metamorphism, syntectonic flysch deposition, and prolonged emplacement of S-type granites, whereby the tectonic zonation became accentuated. Indentation of 'African' promontaries in Iberia and the Bohemian massif caused the formation of two major syntaxial bends as well as large-scale lateral strike-slip escape, parallel or oblique to the tectonic zonation.

Seismic wave paths are calculated, for example by ray tracing, to match the observed travel times for sets of record sections from shots where the waves traverse the same regions in opposite directions. Synthetic seismograms are calculated to match the amplitudes as well as the travel times of the observed signals. Although the seismic experiments along the EGT were not carried out sequentially from north to south but were completed according to financial and organizational conditions, the description that follows of the seismic exploration of the crust proceeds from north to south, so that it covers progressively younger tectonic regions.

It mushrooms above subducted slabs of lithosphere, and, at shallow depth, the forces of its contrasting rheology and density are capable of powering the movements of mountains. We examine these implications further in Chapter 7. This tectonic style may also have been alive when some of the older provinces of Europe consolidated, but here in the Mediterranean, as we show in Chapters 4 and 5, we can measure these movements and estimate the stress fields. With this insight, perhaps the Mediterranean may give us the key to understanding lithosophere dynamics.
