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.
