We examined the shape of the Late Variscan Karlovy Vary granite massif located south of the Ohre/Eger graben in Northern Bohemia by reinterpretation of existing gravity data on two perpendicular profiles. The granite body of about 360 km2 total outcrop size has the elongation ratio 0.35 with the major axis trending NE-SW. The SW part of the body was crossed in the nineties by the seismic profile 9HR which localized the bottom of granites in a depth of about 10 km. We used this value as a… 

Petrophysical and geochemical characteristics of late Variscan granites in the Karlovy Vary Massif (Czech Republic) - implications for gravity and magnetic interpretation in shallow depths

* �Correspondingauthor The Karlovy Vary Massif (KVM) in northern Bohemia is a composite granite body built up of Late Variscan biotite, two-mica and lithium mica granites. We summarize the available

Seismic model and geological interpretation of the basement beneath the Doupovské Hory Volcanic Complex (NW Czech Republic)

The Doupovské Hory Volcanic Complex (DHVC) is the best-preserved large volcanic suite of the Cenozoic intraplate volcanism in the Bohemian Massif. However, many uncertainties remain in the geological

Geophysical evidence of the Eastern Marginal Fault of the Cheb Basin (Czech Republic)

The western part of the Bohemian Massif hosts an intersection of two regional fault zones, the SW-NE trending Ohře/Eger Graben and the NNW-SSE trending Mariánské Lázně Fault, which has been

From the Variscan to the Alpine Orogeny: crustal structure of the Bohemian Massif and the Western Carpathians in the light of the SUDETES 2003 seismic data

SUMMARY The Variscan orogeny is the major Middle to Late Palaeozoic tectonometamorphic event in central Europe, and the Bohemian Massif is the largest exposure of rocks deformed during this

Depth-Recursive Tomography of the Bohemian Massif at the CEL09 Transect—Part B: Interpretation

In the accompanying paper (Part A), depth-recursive tomography was applied to the CEL09 refraction data. A deblurred P-wave velocity image was obtained down to a depth of 20 km. This paper (Part B)

Links between the structure of the mantle lithosphere and morphology of the Cheb Basin (Eger Rift, central Europe)

The Cheb Basin (CHB), located in the western part of the Eger Rift (ER) and the western Bohemian Massif, is characterized by earthquake swarms, neotectonic crust movements and emanations of CO2

Three-dimensional seismic velocity model of the West Bohemia/Vogtland seismoactive region

S U M M A R Y In this paper, we present a smooth 3-D seismic model WB2012 for the West Bohemia/Vogtland earthquake swarm region derived by means of seismic tomography. Inverted data were represented



Granitoid magmatism of the NW Bohemian massif revealed: gravity data, composition, age relations and phase concept

Abstract The late Variscan granitoids of the NW Bohemian massif (northeast Bavaria, west Bohemia) constitute four partly contiguous granitoid complexes: Fichtelgebirge, northern Oberpfalz,

Control of paths of quaternary volcanic products in western Bohemian Massif by rejuvenated Variscan triple junction of ancient microplates

Our objective is to look for deep paths of Cenozoic volcanism and migration routes of active mantle volatiles through the lithosphere of the western Bohemian Massif. We show that the rejuvenated

Derived gravity field of the seismogenic upper crust of SE Germany and West Bohemia and its comparison with seismicity

The gravity field of the seismogenic upper crust was derived from the Bouguer gravity map by applying the Butterworth high-pass filter in the wave-number domain. The cutoff wavelength of the filter

Evolution of the Cornubian ore field, Southwest England; Part I, Batholith modeling and ore distribution

The Cornubian ore field of southwest England is associated with an S-type ilmenite series, high heat production (HHP), two-mica, tourmaline-bearing monzogranite batholith, which formed between 270 to

Geophysical constraints on exhumation mechanisms of high-pressure rocks: the Saxo-Thuringian case between the Franconian Line and Elbe Zone

Abstract Major bodies of high-pressure (HP) rocks in the Saxo-Thuringian Belt in East Germany (Saxonian Granulite Massif, Erzgebirge) are investigated using a variety of geophysical methods (seismic

Constraints on the origin of zonation of the granite complexes in the Fichtelgebirge (Germany and Czech Republic): evidence from a gravity and geochemical study

Abstract Compositional zoning of granitic plutons is a common feature, but the spatial variation of zoning is rarely studied in detail. It is suggested that important additional information can

Carboniferous tectonics of the Variscan basement collage in eastern Bavaria and western Bohemia

Abstract The tectonometamorphic units in the Variscan basement of eastern Bavaria and western Bohemia have a long and complex record of large-scale continental deformation, metamorphism, and syn- and
