The depositional record of intermontane basins provides a valuable archive of the temporal evolution of orogenic belts; their common isolated nature, however, hinders the efficient usage of standard approaches to constrain the age of a basin fill. In this paper the authigenic 10Be/9Be dating method is employed to construct an age model of the exist...

The Transcarpathian Basin, consisting of the Prešov and Trebišov sub-basins, is situated at the border of the Western and Eastern Carpathians. Hydrocarbon exploration in this basin has been ongoing for more than 60 years and reserves of economic importance are located in the E to NE part of the basin. The Trebišov sub-basin was analysed to characte...

The cross-border correlations of the Miocene lithostratigraphic units (Slovakia, Austria) remain poorly constrained, owing to the various sources of clastic material transported into the basin and the low stratigraphic resolution of conglomerates. Therefore, this study is focused on the Lower and Middle Miocene conglomerates in the deltaic systems...

The ratio of radionuclide 10Be and stable nuclide 9Be in a water column is affected by proximity of terrestrial sources, since 9Be is derived from weathering of rock masses, while cosmogenic 10Be has a meteoric origin. Prograding of river deltas forming deltaic parasequences (high frequency cycles) as well as prograding of shelf slopes (4th and hig...

The authigenic 10Be/9Be dating method utilizes the ratio of cosmogenic radionuclide 10Be produced in the atmosphere and of stable 9Be derived from chemical erosion of rock massifs.Different origin of both nuclides points to difficulty in determination of the initial isotopic ratio, which radioactive decay is the base of age calculation using the eq...

Project
The project aim is to specify the effects of factors influencing the authigenic 10Be/9Be dating method and hence to calibrate the method. The effects of changes in sediment source proximity, sediment provenance and depositional process on the authigenic 10Be/9Be will be examined on sedimentary sequences with an ideal framework of conditions - existing robust geochronology and data related to depositional environment and sediment source character. The second aim of the project is to verify the calibration on selected upper Miocene to Quaternary successios of the Vienna, Turiec and East Slovakian basins, which will confirm the efectivity of determination of factors affecting the dating method. The proposed project will enable improvement of precision of the authigenic 10Be/9Be dating method and to specify the conditions needed for the method proper application, what is necessary for its utilization in future research.
Project
Project deals with identification of riftogenic zones in the area of the Western Carpathians and the neighbouring areas. It includes a longer time period from Late Proterozoic (at ca. 550 Ma) up to Mesozoic-Cenozoic boundary (at ca. 60 Ma), when riftogenesis continued with the opening of the main Tethyan oceans on the Earth. These preliminarily determined riftogenic zones will be investigated from the viewpoint of a long-term periodicity, intensity of magmatism, metamorphism and chemical elements mobility (recycling) between the crustal and mantle rocks: Late Proterozoic – Cambrian, Devonian, Permian – Triassic and Jurassic – Cretaceous. Specific groups of rocks and their minerals will be searched as indicators of the riftogenic zones, despite they often have signatures of superimposed tectono-thermal overprinting from their incorporation into the orogenic zones. Mineralogicalpetrological (EPMA, micro-Raman, LA-ICP-MS, XRF, ICP-MS), isotopic-geochemical (LA-MC-ICP-MS, TIMS) and geochronological (U-Pb SIMS, LA-ICP-MS, Ar-Ar, K-Ar) methods will be applied to establish the chemical composition of minerals and rocks, their isotopic characteristics (U-Pb, Pb-Pb, Sm-Nd, Rb-Sr, Zr-Hf, Re-Os) and the ages. Geothermobarometry and thermodynamic modeling with Melts, Perple_X and Thermocalc software will be used for estimation of P-T conditions of the crustal and mantle rocks mineral parageneses formation. This database can reveal the rocks origin and their magmatic and metamorphic evolution stages. We will suggest interpretation models addressed to paleotectonic zones of riftogenesis defined with typical rock associations and their mineralogical-petrological, geochemical and geochronological characteristics. Classification of riftogenic zones and their relationship to the opening of the Tethyan oceans will be confronted with published hypothetical models of riftogenesis as the domains of crust-mantle interaction and recycling, often with a significant economic potential.
