Basement Tectonics 11 Europe and Other Regions: Proceedings by A. Henk (auth.), O. Oncken, C. Janssen (eds.)

By A. Henk (auth.), O. Oncken, C. Janssen (eds.)

The 11th foreign convention on Basement Tectonics used to be held on the GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam in Germany 25-29 July 1994. It was once the 1st time assembly of this sequence came about within the centre of Europe and the 1st such assembly during this zone after the new political adjustments in jap Europe. for this reason, the most subject of the assembly focussed at the constitution and heritage of the full ecu continent. additional issues have been grouped round issues of present curiosity. Keynote lectures on those themes got via A. Berthelsen, St. Mueller, A. eco-friendly, and D. Fountain. The technical classes have been prepared with help of the medical Committee at the following subject matters: 1. Continental scale good points of basement rocks of phanerozoic cratons - with emphasis on Europe 2. Extrapolation and correlation of geological and geophysical facts from basement rocks: an evaluation three. Mechanisms of basement exhumation within the evolution of orogenic belts four. constitution and intraplate deformation of the North-American craton Papers submitted to this quantity have even though all been accumulated in a single half considering them all take care of assorted elements of deformation of the continental basement. A moment half includes a whole checklist of all papers and posters awarded on the assembly. box journeys to check many of the above pointed out facets within the Harz mountains, the Granulite Massif, and the Erzgebirge have been prepared through P. Bankwitz, P. Frischbutter, 1. Rotzler, okay. Rotzler, and B. Mingram. Their help is gratefully acknowledged.

Example text

Strong boudinage developed only in the long fold limbs, indicating that flattening and ductile shear occurred contemperaneously. Mineral lineations and kinematic indicators, such as sc-fabrics and (1- and O-clasts define two different structural domains in the mapped aureole, a western domain and an eastern domain (Fig. 6). The western domain is characterized by an oblique sinistral shear, and frequent mineral lineations and mineral stretching lineations parallel to the fold axes. In contrast the SE domain is characterized by an oblique dextral shear, and scarce mineral lineations and mineral stretching lineations at a large angle to the subvertical fold axes.

Units within the Joshua Flat pluton show a crude normal zoning, compositionally and texturally distinct, magmatic layering, a narrow compositional magmatic banding which is abundant at the pluton'S margin, and a roughly margin-parallel, magmatic foliation, which overprints the banding. Our initial interpretation of these igneous features is that three somewhat distinct magma pulses arrived in the chamber with younger pulses intruding the inner, less viscous part of the chamber. Gradual compositonal changes within each pulse reflect fractionation, whereas the strong magmatic banding, which always occurs along contacts, reflects simultaneous fractionation and contact parallel flow within a steep velocity gradient.
