Abstract The main events that mark the contraction and extension histories of the Scandinavian Caledonides and the European Variscides are summarized. It is shown that continental subduction may have developed similarly large and asymmetric thrust systems in both orogens. However, while continent-continent collision developed in the Variscides, extension began in the Scandinavian Caledonides marking the end of continental subduction. This led extensional tectonics to affect two continental… Expand
