SEDIMENTATION, PALAEOGEOGRAPHY AND TECTONICS OF THE LOWER CARBONIFEROUS IN THE MIDDLE SUDETEN

The Intrasudetic sedimentary area, which forms the essential part of the Middle-Sudeten, has developed during a long period of time.

Its huge sedimentary complex started with the Upper Devonian and was closed with the Upper Cretaceous deposits, the nearly whole Triassic, the Jurassic and the Lower Cretaceous being missing.

The Lower Carboniferous sequence plays the most important role in the basal portion of this complex, as the Upper Devonian is far less in evidence.

The above sequence is up to several kilometers in thickness and maintains throughout the Middle Sudeten a rather uniform lithological development, referred to as the Culm-lithofacies. This consists of conglomerates, graywackes and shales, often very massive and thick-bedded, in other cases fine-layered, alternating many times with each other.
