Cambrian to Devonian record of subduction along the Baltica margin
Séminaire Jaroslaw Majka, février 2023

Résumé

The Scandinavian Caledonides is a Himalaya-type orogen, which bears a record of a c. 100 Myr long Iapetus closure and subsequent collision between Baltica and Laurentia. This complex process resulted in a production of ophiolitic and high pressure sequences known from all tectonostratigraphic levels of the Scandinavian Caledonides and related areas. A brief summary of subductioncollision processes in the northern Iapetus realm will be presented.
