The development of the Carboniferous accretionary wedge in the Moravian-Silesian Paleozoic Basin

Journal of the Czech Geological Society, volume 40 (1995), issue 1-2, 47 - 64


  Abstract

A complicated development of the erosion remnant of the sedimentary part of the Carboniferous accretionary wedge in the Moravian-Silesian region of the Bohemian Massif is comprehensively analyzed on the basis of a great number of data. Results rest upon a lithologic analysis of the flysch and molasse formations, analysis of thicknesses, analysis of the chemical and lithologic composition of sediments of individual lithostratigraphic units, analysis of cannibalism phe¬≠nomena and extensive resedimentation of Carboniferous siliclastics, and upon the structural-tectonic analysis. A review of remnant and foreland basins is given, and the influence of an oblique collision and prograding thrust fold belt upon the changing geometry of the basin and upon the composition and structure of the sedimentary part of the wedge is interpreted.
