Abstract This paper attempts to clarify the complex nature of how and when the Rheic Ocean closed in what is now Central Europe and, with respect to the various terranes that were involved, offer a regional chronology for the associated structural, metamorphic and igneous processes that accompanied and followed this closure. The Variscan orogen in Europe originated from the multiple collisions of Gondwana-derived terranes (the Armorican Terrane Assemblage) with Laurussia: however, many… CONTINUE READING
