About this book

This book covers a multitude of Alpine-type working areas and processes active in collisional mountain building in the form of 16 selected very up-to-date review and research articles covering the Alps, Carpathians and Dinarides. These data were presented at the 8th workshop on Alpine Geological Studies in Davos held in October 2007. The compilations and new data are of interest to earth scientists interested in mountain building in general and those interested in processes of continental collision in particular.

Contents

The papes are grouped into the following sub-topics: Sedimentary processes during orogeny.- Formation of the arc of the Western Alps.- Metamorphic evolution of the Alps.- Timing of orogeny based on radiometric methods and manifold geodynamical consequences.- Thermochronological data on exhumation processes.- Orogen-parallel extension in the Eastern Alps and formation of the Pannonian basin.- Tectonic evolution of the Carpathians, Dinarides and Balkanides
