The objective of the book is to provide an updated synthesis of the evolution of the Alpine fold belt hitherto not available in English. The overall concept is to build on classical Alpine geological studies made since the start of the 19th century by integrating this work with modern results obtained systematically on mid ocean ridges and passive margins worldwide over the past 50 years using new marine geological and geophysical technologies.
The book thus provides an integrated overview of the evolution of the Alps from rift to passive margin to the present fold belt over a time span of 300my. It presents an integrated multidisciplinary synthesis of the evolution of the Alps from rift to passive margin to foldbelt. It includes 175 figures, structural maps and cross sections. It includes an index of localities referred to in the text and figures. It features a brief summary of the history and development of ideas concerning the evolution of fold belts and passive margins since the 19th century. It provides basis for further enquire and research. It also provides wider context relevant to marine and oil industry geoscientists.
