  1. 1. Cryptic Orogeny : uplift of the Al Hajar Mountains at an alleged passive margin

    Author : Reuben Johannes Hansman; Ring Uwe; Joachim Jacobs; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; uplift; mountains; structural; low-temperature; thermochronology; dating; fission-track; U-Th He; U-Pb; calcite; structure-from-motion; photogrammetry; UAV; trishear; fault-propagation; Hafit; Al Hajar Mountains; United Arab Emirates; Oman; Geology; geologi;

    Abstract : Mountains evolve and grow because of the large forces that occur from the collision of tectonic plates. Plate boundaries change and move through time, and regions that were once stable, shallow-marine environments can be dragged into subduction zones and get transformed into vast mountain ranges.

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

    Author : Hagen Bender; Uwe Ring; Bjarne SG Almqvist; Rob Strachan; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; 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. Geophysical studies of the upper crust of the central Swedish Caledonides in relation to the COSC scientific drilling project

    Author : Peter Hedin; Christopher Juhlin; Alireza Malehmir; Bjarne Almqvist; Charles Hurich; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; 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

  4. 4. Seismic Studies of Paleozoic Orogens in SW Iberia and the Middle Urals

    Author : Artem Kashubin; Christopher Juhlin; Lars Nielsen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Reflection seismics; Traveltime tomography; Uralian orogeny; Variscan orogeny; Crustal structure; Geophysics; Geofysik;

    Abstract : Controlled source seismic methods were employed in this study to investigate the reflectivity and velocity structure of two Hercynian orogens – the Uralides and Variscides. Conventional common depth point (CDP) sections from five reflection seismic campaigns and a velocity model obtained from tomographic inversion of wide-angle observations were the main datasets studied from the Middle Urals.

  5. 5. The Mesoproterozoic Hallandian event - a region-scale orogenic event in the Fennoscandian Shield

    Author : Linus Brander; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fennoscandian Shield; Hallandian orogeny; Eastern Segment; Protogine Zone; U-Pb geochronology; zircon; baddeleyite; Nd-isotopes; Hf-isotopes; tectonic model;

    Abstract : The Sveconorwegian Province occupies the southwestern part of the Fennoscandian Shield. The easternmost tectonic unit of the Province is the 1710-1660 Ma parautochthonous Eastern Segment, which bears the imprint of at least two metamorphic events; the 1460-1380 Ma Hallandian and the 1150-970 Ma Sveconorwegian.
