A Continent published provides the findings of the ecu Geotraverse (EGT)--a certain research of the tectonic evolution of the continent of Europe and the 1st finished move component to the continental lithosphere. The venture produced maps and geologic profiles, alongside a 250 kilometer extensive swath stretching 4600 kilometers from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean, which shape a 3 dimensional photo of the constitution, homes, and composition of the continental lithosphere of Europe in an atlas layout. a number of the 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 information represent the full boxed set. The paperback dialogue quantity is additionally on hand individually.

Sample text

The existence in the central North Sea of a curved, N-S to NW-SE trending shear zone called the Loke shear has recently been postulated by Berthelsen This shear appears to cause a dextral offset of the suture of, perhaps, 150-200 km, and of the Caledonides to the south. MOBILE EUROPE 23 ] The Loke shear is believed to have been initiated in Early Devonian time. To the west of it, Caledonian deformation was active throughout the Early Devonian (Soper and Woodcock 1990), whilst to the east it ceased at the very end of the Silurian.

The boundary between the exposed Archean province and the Caledonian nappes lies about halfway between shotpoints FH and FG. It seems as if the Caledonian orogeny has influenced the Archean upper crust. In the area around shotpoint FG the profile traverses the Baltic-Bothnian megashear zone which is expressed by a highly inhomogeneous upper crust that incorporates interleaved high- and low-velocity layers.

The Permo-Carboniferous activity followed a branch across Scania in southern Sweden that continued due west of the Swedish west coast, joining up to the north with the Skagerrak-Oslo rift system. In Scania, a dense swarm of dolerite dykes was intruded more or less parallel with the fault zone. Mesozoic rifting, however, changed the trend and made it cross northern Jutland and enter the northern North Sea. Finally, Cretaceous-Tertiary inversion reshaped the Sorgenfrei Tornquist zone (STZ in Figure 2-4) into what we know today (EUGENO-S Working Group 1988).
