Synopses & Reviews
The Bohemian Massif is the core area of the Variscan Belt of Central Europe. For the first time, geological and geophysical results published in different journals and various languages have been gathered in a single volume and published in English. The book includes studies of seismological inhomogeneities, thermal gravity and geomagnetic fields, as well as geological and petrological models. The interpretation of the deep crust can be seen in connection with the ultradeep well drilled in Bavaria at the north-western margin of the Bohemian Massif. Readers will find a wealth of information contributing to a better understanding of the crustal dynamics of Central Europe.
"The main value of this book lies in its presentation of a very large and comprehensive dataset, making it a valuable addition to the bookshelves of all those working on lithospheric properties and structure in general, and the geodynamics of Central Europe in particular." - Geological Magazine
This volume contains contributions about geophysical lithospheric studies, offering geologic and petrologic as well as geodynamic models for a prominent Central European region. It should be recommended to all scientists working in the crustal structures.
