Sedimentary Basin Tectonics from the Black Sea and Caucasus to the Arabian Platform

Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Geological Society special publication 340.Set: Sedimentary Basin Tectonics from the Black Sea and Caucasus to the Arabian PlatformPublisher: London The Geological Society 2010Description: 509 S.ISBN: 9781862393080.Subject(s): MEBE | Middle East Basin | Sedimentbecken | Strukturgeologie | Schwarzes-Meer-Gebiet | Kaukasus | TektonikDDC classification: 551.80916389 22 Other classification: A.3.16. Online resources: Click here to access online Summary: This wide area of the Alpine-Himalayan belt evolved through a series of tectonic events related to the opening and closure of the Tethys Ocean. In doing so it produced the largest mountain belt of the world, which extends from the Atlantic to the Pacific oceans. The basins associated with this belt contain invaluable information related to mountain building processes and are the locus of rich hydrocarbon accumulations. However, knowledge about the geological evolution of the region is limited compared to what they offer. This has been mainly due to the difficulty and inaccessibility of cross-country studies. This Special Publication is dedicated to the part of the Alpine Himalayan belt running from Bulgaria to Armenia, and from Ukraine to the Arabian Platform. It includes twenty multidisciplinary studies covering topics in structural geology/tectonics; geophysics; geochemistry; palaeontology; petrography; sedimentology; stratigraphy; and subsidence and lithospheric modelling. This volume reports results obtained during the MEBE (Middle East Basin Evolution) Programme and related projects in the circum Black Sea and peri-Arabian regions.
