Balanced cross section of the Ukrainian Carpathians along Berehomet–Burkut

The presented balanced and restored geological sections demonstrate modern structure of the South–Western part of the Ukrainian Carpathians and quantitative parameters of the sedimentation basin development during the Lower Cretaceous and the Upper Cretaceous–Paleogene ages (~ 145–25 Ma). Balanced cross section is based on the field studies using modern geological maps and geophysical data. They result from the great amount of factual materials – published and collected from outcrops along the cross section.
