The evolution of the Uralian orogen

  title={The evolution of the Uralian orogen},
  author={Victor N. Puchkov},
Abstract The Uralian orogen is located along the western flank of a huge (>4000 km long) intracontinental Uralo-Mongolian mobile belt. The orogen developed mainly between the Late Devonian and the Late Permian, with a brief resumption of orogenic activity in the Lower Jurassic and Pliocene–Quaternary time. Although its evolution is commonly related to the Variscides of Western Europe, its very distinctive features argue against a simple geodynamic connection. To a first order, the evolution of…

Construction of the Continental Asia in Phanerozoic: A Review
This is a review of the formation and tectonic evolution of the continental Asia in Phanerozoic. The continental Asia has formed on the bases of some pre‐Cambrian cratons, such as the Siberia, India,
Structural stages and evolution of the Urals
Five main structural and historical stages are established in the territory of the Urals: 1) Archean-Paleoproterozoic, a time of formation of the Volgo-Uralia subcontinent and its amalgamation with
Late Palaeozoic magmatism of Northern Taimyr: new insights into the tectonic evolution of the Russian High Arctic
ABSTRACT We report new results of a comprehensive study into Carboniferous – Early Permian granite magmatism of the northern Taimyr Peninsula, Russia (southern part of the Kara Terrane). U-Pb zircon
Environmental changes in the Late Ordovician–early Silurian: Review and new insights from black shales and nitrogen isotopes
The Late Ordovician (Katian-Hirnantian) through earliest Silurian (Rhuddanian) interval was a time of varying climate and sea level, marked by a peak glacial episode in the early-mid-Hirnantian.
The Paleozoic Evolution of the Olga Basin Region, Northern Barents Sea: A Link to the Timanian Orogeny
The evolution of the Olga Basin region in the northern Norwegian Barents Sea and its relation to the Caledonian and Timanian orogenies is poorly understood due to sparse geophysical data and the lack
Fold belts and sedimentary basins of the Eurasian Arctic
The vast Eurasian Arctic epicontinental shelf and adjoining mainland has a very complex structure and tectonic history as a result of a series of continent–continent collisions, accretion of terranes
Mineralogical, geochemical and geochronological studies in the Uralides and Variscides : contributions to the understanding of dynamic processes in collisional orogens
New data on the major and trace element geochemistry of granitoid and basaltic intrusive rocks of the Mariinskiy and Nishniy Sanarskiy complexes to the east of the Troitsk fault (western Transuralian

Abstract The Urals are a Late Palaeozoic orogenic belt. The relicts of earlier orogens are traced in its basement. In particular, the Late Vendian pre-Uralian orogen is reconstructed and identified
Tectonic processes in the Southern and Middle Urals: an overview
Abstract The tectonic evolution of the Uralide orogen began during the Late Palaeozoic as the continental margin of Baltica entered an east-dipping (today's coordinates) subduction zone beneath the

Abstract The Urals are a linear north-south-trending belt (2500 km in length, from Novaya Zemlya to the Aral Sea). Their apparent narrowness (100-150 km) in the polar and cispolar parts is mainly due
Tectonic Processes During Collisional Orogenesis from Comparison of the Southern Uralides with the Central Variscides
A great deal of available multidisciplinary data that focused around URSEIS and DEKORP 2N-2S deep seismic profiles contribute to an advanced understanding of the respective Southern Uralide and
The Neoproterozoic Timanide Orogen of eastern Baltica
The Neoproterozoic Timanide Orogen of eastern Baltiea extends from the high Arctic to the southern Ural Mountains and represents significant crustal growth of the northeastern European continental
A synthesis of the stratigraphic and tectonic setting of the Uralian ophiolites
The Ural Mountains mark a 2500 km long, linear mid-Palaeozoic orogenic zone representing the closure of an ocean basin-island arc system between the European Plate to the west and the Siberian Plate

Protolith ages of eclogites, Marun-Keu Complex, Polar Urals, Russia: implications for the pre- and early Uralian evolution of the northeastern European continental margin
Abstract Single zircon U-Pb dating by ion microprobe and Pb-evaporation techniques, combined with Sr-Nd isotopic and geochemical data, constrain the pre- and early Uralian evolution of the Marun-Keu
