Price: hardcover £ In the Variscan fold belt (south Wales and southwest England), the pattern is dominated by E–W trends and easterly plunges; the latter possibly relating to large-scale post-Variscan tilting. To the north, in the Variscan foreland, the fold axes are highly variable in trend (Fig.

5).Cited by: 5. The Variscan Orogen is a broad, sinuous, E-W trending fold belt, running from Portugal to Poland (Floyd et al., ). The orogen developed during the closure of the Rheic Ocean and subsequent collision of the Gondwana and Laurasian continents, to form the supercontinent of Pangaea, by the end of the Carboniferous (Bristow et al., ).

[Henno Martin; F W Eder; Sonderforschungsbereich The Variscan orogenic belt extends in western Europe for more than 3, km (1, miles) from Portugal, Ireland, and England in the west through Spain, France (Brittany, Massif Central, Vosges, and Corsica), and Germany (Black Forest, Harz) to the Czech Republic in the Bohemian Massif.

The Variscan Orogenic Belt consists primarily of Devonian (75–8) and Carboniferous (79–83) strata, with older metamorphic rocks at Lizard Point and Start Point.

In older books and maps, the Lizard Point was incorrectly assigned to the Precambrian. The main effects on the UK took place in the late Carboniferous to early Permian (about million years ago).

The event created the Variscan mountain belt, which includes the mountains of Portugal and western Spain, southwest Ireland, Cornwall, Devon, Pembrokeshire, the Gower Peninsula and the Vale of Glamorgan.

Plate Tectonic Setting For SouthWest England. Introduction Two major orogenic episodes have affected the rocks of the Southwest British Isles, the Palaeozoic Variscan and the Tertiary Alpine Orogenies.

The earlier event, the Variscan is the primary event responsible for the evolution of Cornwall, whereas the Alpine Orogeny is reflected in the gentle folding and thrust faulting of the Mesozoic. In: Ph. Matte (Editor), Terranes in the Variscan Belt of Europe and Circum-Atlantic Paleozoic Orogens.

The Variscan (sometimes called “Hercynian”) orogeny was the last great period of mountain building to affect the British Isles. The heart of this mountain belt lay above much of France (e.g. the Britanny peninsula) and it is here that once deeply-buried rocks are now exposed at the Earth’s surface.
