Ukrainian Carpathians in the structure of pancardi (magmatism and geodynamics)

Purpose of investigations – to ascertain the position of Ukrainian part of the Carpathian geosyncline in the common structure of the Pannonian-Carpathian-Dinarides region (Pancardi) at different stages of the development. Methodology. Integrated analysis of the peculiarities of different-age magmatism together with other geological-geophysical material and reconstruction of the structure and geodynamics of both the whole Pancardi and the Ukrainian Carpathian in particular at different stages of alpine development. Findings.

The role of magmatism in paleogeodynamic reconstructions

Significance of magmatism as a marker of geodynamic processes of the past geological epochs is considered. A scheme of phased studies of magmatic rocks is given as well as their generalization and connection to tectonic structures. On the basis of formation analysis and mineral-geochemical indicators of the Cainozoic volcanites it is proved that geological development of the Ukrainian Carpathians during Cainozoic go on a collision geodynamic regime type.
