Tectonic evolution of marginal part of the Polish Flysch Carpathians in the Middle Miocene

Nestor Oszczypko, Adam Tomaś


Paleotectonic and paleogeographic analyses indicate that the Miocene depositional centers migrated towards northeast, to the outer parts of the epi-Variscan European Platform. The Carpathian over-thrust movements were synchroneous with the development and migration of Miocene molasse basins in the foredeep. The ultimate tectonic pattern of the Outer Flysch Carpathians over Polish territory was formed in the Middle Miocene. In the western part it took place after the Early Badenian, whereas in the eastern part after the Early Sarmatian.
