Tectonic Interrelation of the Dinarides and the Southern Alps


Title (Dublin Core)

eng Tectonic Interrelation of the Dinarides and the Southern Alps

Description (Dublin Core)

eng The study focuses on northwestern Croatia which, including the Zumberak (Zumberacka Gora), Medvednica (Zagrebacka Gora), Kalnik, Ivanscica, and Ravna Gora mountains, make a cross area of the Slovenian “Sava Folds”, Southern Alps, Mid-Transdanubian Zone, Tisia, and the Inner Dinarides. This is a complex structural region and cannot be attributed merely to one of the units. Therefore, a geotectonic interpretation is proposed which respects the diversification and multiple superposition of basinal and platform elements. This concept allows linkage of the Slovenian Trough with the Bosnian Zone and its southeastern prolongation as a major coherent tectonic unit overlain by different nappe elements. The possible linkage with the Budva Zone beneath the carbonate nappe is also discussed.
