    Author : Iwona Klonowska; Jarosław Majka; Peter Lazor; Marian Janák; Bjarne Almqvist; Jane Gilotti; []
    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

    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

  4. 4. Deep seismic studies in the western part of the Baltic shield

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johannes Schmidt; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap; Geofysik med inriktning mot seismologi; Geophysics with specialization in Seismology;

    Abstract : The Caledonides form an ancient orogenic belt at the western margin of the Balticshield and in Scotland. They are the result of a three-part continent collision thattook place c. 430-390 million years ago. READ MORE

  5. 5. Testing Tectonic Concepts in the Seve Nappe Complex, Jämtland, Sweden

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Hagen Bender; Uwe Ring; Bjarne Almqvist; Karin Högdal; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Caledonian orogeny; Seve Nappe Complex; Kinematic analysis; Geology; geologi;

    Abstract : When continental plates collide, one of the involved continents is subducted beneath the other one. As a consequence, the lithosphere thickens along the convergent plate boundary and causes the formation of a mountain belt. READ MORE
