Article
Full-text available
Results of in situ U–Pb dating of calcite spherulites, cone-in-cone (CIC) calcite and calcite fibres from a calcareous concretion of the upper Ediacaran of Finnmark, Arctic Norway, are reported. Calcite spherulites from the innermost layers of the concretion yielded a lower intercept age of 563 ± 70 Ma, which, although imprecise, is within uncertai...
Article
Full-text available
Siliciclastic sediments from the Upper Palaeozoic Konya Complex and its Mesozoic cover were studied by a multi-method approach combining thin-section petrography, bulk-rock geochemistry, mineral chemistry of rutile, and U–Pb geochronology of detrital zircons. Provenance sensitive data of samples from the Upper Palaeozoic Halıcı Formation indicate s...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The Neoproterozoic-Cambrian succession in the remote Digermulen Peninsula of the Tanafjorden area in eastern Finnmark, northern Norway, has attracted renewed research interest because of new findings of Ediacaran- aged fossils (e.g. Jensen et al., 2018, Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences). Hitherto, the entire upper Ediacaran and Cambrian successio...
Article
The Late Devonian Siljan Ring structure in Sweden is the largest known impact structure in Europe. The present-day structure comprises a central dome that is about 20–30 km in diameter, which is surrounded by a ring-shaped depression. In this study, we focus on the southwestern part of the Siljan Ring with the aim to map the structure of the Paleoz...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Exposures are very limited in the Siljan impact structure and contact relations of most units are not visible. Drill cores are the only useful tool to discover the complex geological history of this area where the sedimentation on the Proterozoic basement started during the late Tremadocian and lasted at least until the Late Silurian with the depos...
Article
Full-text available
The Stumsnäs 1 core, drilled in 2011 in the southern part of the Siljan Ring, represents a structurally complex section and provides new insights into the impact-induced local structure in central Sweden. The Siljan Ring was formed around the central uplift of a Late Devonian meteorite crater, the largest known impact structure in Europe. The Stums...
Article
Full-text available
The Stumsnäs 1 core, drilled in 2011 in the southern part of the Siljan Ring, provides new insights into the stratigraphy of the Ordovician succession in central Sweden. The core section shows evidence of the structural complications caused by the late Devonian meteorite impact in the area. In the core, about 90 m of Tremadocian to Darriwilian stra...
Article
The orientation, asymmetry and cross-cutting relationships of the structures along the contact zone between the Lycian nappes and the Menderes Massif suggest the presence of three deformation phases in the Milas region of southwest Turkey. The first deformation phase (D1) is characterized by a ductile deformation with top-to-the-NE sense of shear....
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Siljan is Europe’s largest impact structure and preserves unique Lower Palaeozoic sedimentary successions in its ring-like depression around the central uplift. Outcrops are limited, but the Lower Palaeozoic stratigraphy investigated in three core sections provides new information revolutionizing the knowledge of the development of this area locate...
Article
Foliation boudinage is a deflection of foliation in the vicinity of a central discontinuity in foliated rocks, mostly filled with vein material. It shows evidence for brittle deformation and void-opening during ductile flow. We used a two-dimensional visco-elastic spring model based on a discrete element approach to study the dynamic development of...
Article
Full-text available
Natural and man-made brittle layers embedded in a weaker matrix and subjected to layer-parallel extension typically develop an array of opening-mode fractures with a remarkably regular spacing. This spacing often scales with layer thickness, and it decreases as extension increases until fracture saturation is reached. Existing analytical one-dimens...
Article
Full-text available
Mass wasting at continental margins on a global scale during the Middle Ordovician has recently been related to high meteorite influx. Although a high meteorite influx during the Ordovician should not be neglected, we challenge the idea that mass wasting was mainly produced by meteorite impacts over a period of almost 10 Ma. Having strong arguments...

Conference Paper
In layered sequences, rock joints usually best develop within the more brittle layers and commonly display a regular spacing that scales with layer thickness. A variety of conceptual and mechanical models have been advanced to explain this relationship. A limitation of previous approaches, however, is that fracture initiation and associated bedding...
Conference Paper
Structural data recorded along the contact zone between the Menderes Massif and the overlying Lycian nappes provide information about tectonic transport directions of the Lycian nappes in southwestern Turkey. Key units were investigated in the Milas region. Flysch-type sedimentary rocks form the uppermost unit of the Menderes Massif. Metapelites an...
Article
Foliation boudinage is a form of boudinage that develops in foliated rocks independent of lithology contrast. This paper describes foliation boudins from the C¸ ine Massif in SW Turkey and the Furka PasseUrseren Zone in central Switzerland. Four common types of foliation boudin structures can be distinguished in the field, named after vein geometri...
