Post-Variscan magmatic/volcanic activity of the Bohemian Massif

Virtual volume edited by V. Rapprich and V. Kachlík

Post-Variscan evolution of the Bohemian Massif has been repeatedly associated with continental within-plate volcanism. The decay of Variscan orogen resulted in formation of intermontane basins, where both mafic and silicic volcanism occurred frequently. Doming of asthenospheric mantle since the Latest Cretaceous resulted in formation of alkaline magmas. The Cenozoic alkaline volcanic activity concentrated in the Eger Graben (e.g., Doupovské hory Volcanic Complex, České středohoří Volcanic Complex), but occurred also on the rift shoulders up to 150 km off its axis.
