Geodynamic evolution of the Bohemian Massif

Tectonic evolution of the Bohemian Massif is a key issue in understanding the formation of the Variscan orogenic belt in Europe. The Bohemian Massif apparently exposes the whole orogenic structure including two colliding Neoproterozoic crustal blocks, well documented relics of Devonian–Carboniferous subduction zone in-between, relatively weakly deformed fore-arc region, deeply eroded magmatic arc and a former back-arc domain that was deeply buried and strongly reworked during collisional stage of the orogeny. This virtual volume brings together those contributions related directly to Palaeozoic magmatic, metamorphic and tectonic processes in particular orogenic domains that led to the establishment of the present-day Bohemian Massif structure.
