*Corresponding author This paper summarizes our recent research on the relationship between tectonics of the mantle lithosphere and of the upper crust in the western Bohemian Massif. The rejuvenated Variscan junction of three mantle domains, the Saxothuringian, Moldanubian and Tepla–Barrandian, delimited by different orientation of seismic anisotropy reflecting a consistent fossil olivine orientation and belonging to originally separated microplates, plays important role in the crustal… Expand

Magmatic Evidence for Carbonate Metasomatism in the Lithospheric Mantle underneath the Ohře (Eger) Rift
Magmas erupted in intracontinental rifts typically form from melting of variable proportions of asthenospheric or lithospheric mantle sources and ascend through thick continental lithosphere. ThisExpand
Lead isotope evolution of the Central European upper mantle: Constraints from the Bohemian Massif
Abstract The Pb isotope composition of the upper mantle beneath Central Europe is heterogeneous due to the subduction of regionally contrasting material during the Variscan and Alpine orogenies. LateExpand

Rhenium–osmium isotopes in pervasively metasomatized mantle xenoliths from the Bohemian Massif and implications for the reliability of Os model ages
Abstract Peridotite xenoliths brought to the surface by basaltic lavas attest to a variety of mantle processes, including partial melting, melt percolation or refertilization. The whole rock Re–OsExpand
