  1. 1. Geophysical studies of the upper crust of the central Swedish Caledonides in relation to the COSC scientific drilling project

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Peter Hedin; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; reflection seismic; collisional orogeny; Scandinavian Caledonides; COSC; scientific drilling; geophysical logging; gravity; magnetics; Geofysik med inriktning mot fasta jordens fysik; Geophysics with specialization in Solid Earth Physics;

    Abstract : The Collisional Orogeny in the Scandinavian Caledonides (COSC) project aims to provide a deeper understanding of mountain belt dynamics through scientific deep drilling in the central parts of the mountain belt of western Sweden. The main targets include a subduction related allochthon, the basal orogenic detachment and the underlying partially subducted Precambrian basement. READ MORE

  2. 2. Assembly of the Caledonian Orogenic Wedge, Jämtland, Sweden

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Geological Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Hagen Bender; Stockholms universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; collisional orogeny; Scandinavian Caledonides; Seve Nappe Complex; Köli Nappe Complex; in-sequence thrusting; out-of-sequence thrusting; imbrication; nappe stacking; orogenic wedge assembly; Rb–Sr geochronology; rock magnetism; anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility; Geology; geologi;

    Abstract : Collisional orogeny creates the largest mountain belts on Earth. The Caledonides of Scandinavia are a deeply eroded, ancient mountain belt, which today exposes a deep section through the former orogenic interior. READ MORE

  3. 3. Deep subduction of the Seve Nappe Complex in the Scandinavian Caledonides

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Iwona Klonowska; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; geothermobarometry; thermodynamic modelling; Raman spectroscopy; diamond; ultrahigh-pressure metamorphism; eclogite; peridotite; gneiss;

    Abstract : This thesis seeks to improve our understanding of the processes involved in continental collision zones, with a particular focus on subduction-exhumation. The main objective of this work has been to define the tectonometamorphic evolution of the deeply subducted Seve Nappe Complex (SNC) in the Scandinavian Caledonides. READ MORE

  5. 5. Early structural and metamorphic evolution of the Scandinavian Caledonides: a study of the eclogite-bearing Seve Nappe Complex at the Arctic Circle, Sweden

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lena Gunlög Albrecht; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; oblique compression.; C -type shear bands; anastomozing shear zones; tubular folds; lineation-parallel folds; northern Sweden; Grapesvare Nappe; Seve Nappe Complex; Finnmarkian; Eclogite; corona dolerite; Petrology; mineralogy; geochemistry; Petrologi; mineralogi; geokemi;

    Abstract : In the Seve Nappe Complex of the Swedish Caledonides, coronitic diabases pass into eclogites; sometimes the transition occurs within one and the same boudin. Calculated pressure-temperature conditions for the eclogite facies stage are 20-27 kbar and 650-750°. READ MORE
