  • The Ural mountains preserve a late Palaeozoic collision that forms a 2500 km suture in the world's largest landmass, Eurasia. Several features of the mountain belt, in particular a well-preserved crustal root, are uncharacteristic of other Palaeozoic orogens such as the Appalachians and Caledonides. Previous interpretations of the Southern Uralian root suggested that it is composed of East European Craton crust derived from the west. A new potential field data model, considered in conjunction… CONTINUE READING
