The Scandinavian Caledonides are the vestiges of an ancient, today deeply eroded orogenic belt formed during the Silurian–Devonian continental collision of Baltica and Laurentia, which is referred to as the Scandian phase of the Caledonian orogeny.

The size of the Scandinavian Caledonides at the time of their formation can be compared with the size of the Himalayas. The Caledonide Orogen: Scandinavia and Related Areas (Two Volumes) Hardcover – January 1, # in Geology (Books) Would you like to tell us about a lower price.

The Caledonian orogeny was a mountain-building era recorded in the northern parts of Ireland and Britain, the Scandinavian Mountains, Svalbard, eastern Greenland and parts of north-central Europe.

The Caledonian orogeny encompasses events that occurred from the Ordovician to Early Devonian, roughly – million years ago ().It was caused by the closure of the Iapetus Ocean when the. The highest nappe complexes in the Caledonides of Scandinavia, collectively termed the Uppermost Allochthon, are distinguished by their characteristic lithological assemblages and magmatic units that, in many ways, set them apart from the subjacent, Baltoscandian.

Following an outline of Scandinavian Caledonide tectonostratigraphy, tracing the Neoproterozoic, Baltoscandian, passive margin of Baltica outboard into the suspect, Iapetus oceanic terranes and farther into the highest allochthons, which carry evidence of Laurentian ancestry, descriptions are presented of the principal tectonothermal events recorded in different parts of the mountain by: J.

The peninsula of Scandinavia presents very interesting geological and physical features.

A great part of the country was uplifted above the ocean at a very remote period, and there is no other region which exhibits at the surface, comparatively, more extensive areas of the primary rocks constituting a large portion of the oldest crust of the globe.

This study reviews lithological and stratigraphic data, new geological mapping results and microscopic work from the lower and middle Caledonian nappes in central Scandinavia, and suggests a model.

This set of papers arose from a Discussion Meeting held in the Department of Geology & Applied Geology, University of Glasgow, on 9–10 September The aim of the Meeting was to review the progress which had been made in resolving some of the more controversial aspects of the pre-Silurian Caledonide geology of the British Isles and by: Advances in electronic devices with higher speeds and complexity have placed higher demands on the electronic packaging of systems.
