Metamorphic core complexes from Eastern Alps to western Turkey
Convenor: Shuyun Cao
Metamorphic core complexes play a critical role in explanation of the central metamorphic zone of the Alpine-Mediterranean mountain belts. In that orogen, many metamorphic core complexes interfer with formation of sedimentary basins, lateral extrusion processes as well as with extension during retreat of the subduction zone. The proposed session is aimed to deal with structural and geochronological aspects of such metamorphic core complexes from Eastern Alps to western Turkey and their relationships with coeval sedimentary basins.
