Reflection of the Eastern Carpatians tectonic in thermal field

Heat flow density changes from 35-40 mW/m2 in the south-western part of East-European Craton and the Carpathian foredeep to 50-60 mW/m2 in the Outer Carpathians and to 80-120 mW/m2 in the Pannonian basin. Several levels of thermal field reflect main stages of tectonic evolution and feature of lithosphere structure. High heat flow anomaly was created by Cenozoic geodynamic processes related to collision of the European plate and Alcape microplate.

Tectonic zoning of the Carpathians in term`s of the terrane tectonics article 2. The Flysch Carpathian – ancient accretionary prism

The tectonic units of the Carpathians are considered in terms of the terrane analysis. The Flysch Carpathian nappes and Samdir molasse unit are regarded as the ancient accretionary prism. Growing the prism was caused by the Alpine subduction of the Carpathian Flysch basin basement beneath both the ALCAPA and Tisza-Dacia terranes. At the Cretaceous-Paleogene time the Fore-Marmarosh flysch prism was formed in the front of TiszaDacia terrane and the Pieniny Klippen Belt – Monastyrets–Magura – Duclya wedge was builded in the forland of ALCAPA one.

Tectonic zoning of the Carpathians in terms of the terrane tectonics section 1. Main units of the Carpathian building

The tectonic units of the Carpathians are considered in terms of the terrain analysis. Carpathathian orogen is build up of three main elements: microcontinental terrains, sutures and flysch-molasse accretionary prism. There are two main terrains: a northern ALCAPA and a southern Tisza-Dacia. Sutures (Fore-Marmarosh suture, Pieniny Klippen Belt and others), marking the ancient oceanic basins, bound these terrains. The Flysch Carpathians are regarded as the Cretaceous-Neogene accretionary prism.

Structure of the lateral extrusion in the Carpathians

Purpose. The aim is to identify the structural forms of the lateral extrusion in the Western Ukrainian Carpathians and to create the preliminary conceptual model of its forming. Methodology. Methods of the geological mapping and structural analysis were used. The analysis of the fault-related folds and others deformations including melange, restoration of the stress fields by the standard method using the conjugate shear fractures and decryption of the satellite imagery played an important role especially in the diagnosis of the strike-slip zones.

Crustal conductors and asthenosphere in the Carpathian region

Carpathian electrical conductivity anomaly (CEA) is traced by construction and analysis of induction vectors from which maximum possible depth (20-25 km) and integral conductance (about 108 Sm×m) were estimated. The true depth is determined by sounding methods: MTS over the axis of CEA was performed in only two areas in which properties of the AEC were different. Electric asthenosphere in Pannonian Basin begins at smaller depth (50-100 km) than on platforms (100-250 km), but results are not accurate, sometimes contradictory.

Pequliarities of geological structure and geodynamic evolution of south-eastern part of Volyn-Podolsk plate in the context of hydrocarbon potential

Data on the history of geological evolution of the south-eastern part of zone of junction of Volyn-Podolsk plate and Carpathian foredeep are generalized. The main structural and tectonic elements are describe which are formed at different stages of development of this area. Geodynamic factors of formation of hydrocarbon traps are analyzed and the main prospective areas are selected.

Digital elevation model into the territory of the Skhidnytsia resort

Methods and ways of digital terrain modeling are considered in the article. Vektor and raster digital terrain models for the resort Skhidnycya in the moutain region of Carpathians are built in the programs Surfer and GIS Panorama. There is also done comparative analysis of DTM and practical recommendations concerning its application are given.
