  • Chapter 1 Variscan – Alleghanian orogen
    • Abstract: Publication date: 1988
      Source:Developments in Geotectonics, Volume 22
      Author(s): N. RAST
      The Variscan – Alleghanian orogen stretches from the southeastern United States to eastern Europe and fragments of it are also detected in eastern and northeastern Africa. The orogen has originally been produced by the collision between Gondwana, Laurentian and Baltic cratons, as well as the intervening microcontinents. As a result of postorogenic erosion, superposed sedimentation and Mesozic and Tertiary rifting and compressive episodes the orogen is divided into separated segments and massifs. The north-northwestern edge of the orogen, marked by the northern Variscan thrust and deformation front, indicates tectonic transport to the north-northwest, while the south-southeastern edge of the orogen similarly delineated by the southern Variscan front shows tectonic transport to the south-southeast. This polarity is the strongest evidence for the continental collision causing Variscan – Alleghanian orogeny. Within the fronts the orogen can be divided into the internides and the northern and southern externides. The internides are characterized by variable, but commonly high-grade metamorphism and granitic intrusions. The northern externides are weakly metamorphosed, generally devoid of granites, and strongly affected by overthrusting. The southern externides have had similar features but are heavily overprinted by the Alpine structures. Several lines can be suggested as collisional sutures. The orogen forms a foundation to the postorogenic Permo-Triassic deposits.

  • Chapter 2 Triassic – Jurassic plate migrations and paleogeographic
           reconstructions in the Atlantic domain
    • Abstract: Publication date: 1988
      Source:Developments in Geotectonics, Volume 22
      Author(s): ROB VAN DER VOO
      New insights into the Triassic paleomagnetic data base for the Atlantic-bordering continents, coupled with a previously published analysis of late Paleozoic paleopoles, reveal that of all the different Pangea reconstructions, a fit in which northwestern South America and the Gulf Coast of North America are juxtaposed best matches the available data. This fit has previously been referred to as Pangea A2. Other models (Pangea B, C) are not supported by the paleomagnetic and geological data. Latest Triassic – Early Jurassic paleopoles for North America's Colorado Plateau from the Wingate and Chinle Formations fall near 60°N, 62°E; when African paleopoles of the same age are compared with this pair, the best rotation parameters to bring them into agreement are also in support of Pangea A2. This implies that the early opening of the central North Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico occurred from an initial reconstruction such as Pangea A2.

           An overview

      Events leading to the breakup of the Pangean plate and evolution of the Atlantic passive margins are recorded in the rock record of more than 40 offshore and onshore Late Triassic – Early Jurassic synrift basins that formed on the Variscan – Alleghanian orogen. The record shows that rifting took place along low-angle detachment faults, giving rise to half-grabens along a conjugate set of lower and upper plate margins that are noteably asymmetric. The American plate was marked by a broad belt of marginal plateaus with many northeast-trending detrital basins that were linked to eachother by transfer faults and displaced by cross faults. The Moroccan plate, on the other hand, was marked by few broadly subsiding evaporite basins. Typically each half-graben on the American plate was bordered by a hinged margin and one major basin-bounding fault, which delineated the surface trace of synthetic or antithetic listric faults on a seaward-dipping detachment zone. The American plate (during the Late Triassic) was dominated by high relief with high-altitude fluvial-lacustrine basins along the western part of the orogen, and by low-relief sea-level evaporite basins proximal to the future spreading axis. During detachment faulting, in the Late Triassic – Early Jurassic, the lower plate must have been uplifted isostatically into a broad central arch that migrated seaward, as the load of the overlying upper plate continued to be reduced by erosion and listric faulting. This had the consequence of elevating Late Triassic marine strata that lay near the proto-Atlantic axis. During the Lias, these marine basins were eroded and their strata reworked and transported landward toward the onshore basins of Morocco and North America. The topographic reversal is thought to reflect the easterly migration of upwelling asthenosphere, in response to tectonic thinning along the newly forming margin. It was a time of major crustal thinning with development of the postrift unconformity (COST G-2 cores), and adiabatic decompression on the upwelling asthenosphere. Whereas the earliest melts yielded off-axis alkaline-rich volcanics (as in Morocco), subsequent melts, which were derived from later partial melt derivatives, were tholeiitic (as in the Palisades). As the upwelling asthenosphere migrated eastward in response to tectonic thinning, the ‘abandoned’ rift-stage crust cooled and subsided, thereby ushering in the drifting phase of the margin. The Moroccan plate, by contrast, was a broad region of low relief throughout most of the Triassic and Liassic. It was distinguished by few detrital basins, and almost all of these occurred along the South Atlas fracture zone, as Triassic strike-slip basins in the High Atlas. Except for the offshore Essaouira basin, which is a seaward extension of the High Atlas Argana basin, the Moroccan margin (unlike the American) consists of few documented Triassic – Liassic rift basins. Triassic rifting of the Middle Atlas (e.g. at Bab-Bou-Idir and Berkane) broke the orogen into the Oranian and Moroccan mesetas, and is manifested by a thick carbonate sequence. The majority of the intraplate basins of North African occur on the mesetas, and are nonrift; typically they contain nonclastic, marine and fresh water evaporites of Liassic and younger strata that formed in broad, shallow, drift-type basins on a generally subsiding terrane of low relief, near the very end of synrift time.
