Influence of tectonic of the consolidated basement of the Carpathians on distribution of flysch masses in the Polish part of the Western Carpathians

Zbigniew Paul, Wojciech Ryłko, Adam Tomaś


The paper presents the analysis or morphology of major divisions in the western part of the Polish Flysch Carpathians. The top surface of the consolidated basement, the surface of the Carpathian overthrust and the base surface of the Magma unit have been accepted as the main surfaces of division. Evaluation of the influence of tectonics of the consolidated Carpathian basement, developed during its neogene remodelling on the distribution of the flysch masses, has been attempted.
