Sample text

9 Ga when Proterozoic Europe was situated next to North America, and when the two continents shared a continuous active margin. After the Cadomian orogeny, deep rifted sedimentary basins developed across those parts of Proterozoic Europe which by then had become a part of Gondwana. During the Late Ordovician, they experienced, like neighbouring regions of Gondwana, a major glaciation, the 'Saharan' glaciation. Meanwhile, a wide ocean, the so-called Tornquist Sea', was opening between the ice-covered relics and the northward drifting and anticlockwise rotating Baltica, Figure 2-2.

The northern and oldest leg of the triple junction, the Laurentia-Baltica suture, is more difficult to trace because not only has there been large-scale post-collisional shortening, but also later strike-slip movements, and finally crustal extension and rifting, have been superimposed. 8 THE ENGLISH-NORTH GERMAN-POLISH CALEDONIDES The English-North German-Polish Caledonides stretched from southern Ireland, Wales and England across the central and southern part of the North Sea to northern France, Belgium, Holland, Northern Germany and Poland (Figure 2-4).

This part, therefore, is of more noble and ancient origin. None the less, the crustal structure of the Polish Teisseyre Tornquist zone (Guterch et al. 1986) and that of the Sorgenfrei Tornquist zone due south of Scania (BABEL Working Group 1991) appear to show a great many similarities. 13 FINAL BREAKUP OF PANGEA: THE TETHYAN EVOLUTION With the entire assemblage of Gondwana and Laurussia locked together into the single continent of Pangaea, its massive continental entity extended, in Early Jurassic times, virtually from one pole to the other, giving the world a very different configuration of continent and ocean from the present.
