Overview

The proceedings of the Eleventh International Basement Tectonics Conference is part of a major series of publications dealing with intraplate tectonics. The Eleventh Conference, held in Potsdam, Germany, presents aspects of the basement tectonics of Eastern and Western Europe; the first time they have been assembled in one meeting. Internationally recognised experts in a variety of fields review broad, key, integrative aspects of major fields which contribute to the understanding of the European basement and to geophysical methods of basement analysis.
The book focuses mainly on the structure and history of the entire European continent. The recent political reorganisation of Europe has helped to promote several international programs aimed at understanding the deep basement of the European continental features. Accordingly, the majority of the papers included in this volume deal with different aspects on the structure and evolution of the European continent and its various orogenic belts and postorogenic features. Topics range from modelling of the thermal evolution of basement rocks, fabrics in deformed rocks, and geophysical features of basement units to intrusion and concomitant deformation of the basement. Similar aspects are addressed in further chapters focusing on other Phanerozoic cratons and are grouped around topics of current interest: the problem of extrapolation and correlation of geological and geophysical data from basement rocks, and the mechanisms of basement exhumation in the evolution of orogenic belts.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Neither about experiments you can do in the basement or garage, nor about shifts in your foundation, but rather about the history and structure of the deep geography underlying large regions, mostly Europe with some excursions to California, Siberia, the US midwest, and Argentina. Others of the 12 papers discuss late- orogenic burial and exhumation at a major Variscan suture zone, the structural setting of the Paleozoic crystalline basement of the Northern Apennines, seismic data of the Carpathian foredeep basement, and the multifractal analysis of fault structures in basement rocks. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
