Neogene to early Pleistocene subsidence close to the Pieniny Klippen Belt, Polish Carpathians

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Rates of subsidence or deposition were calculated for intramontane depression filled with Neogene and early Pleistocene fresh-water deposits close to the Pieniny Klippen Belt of the Carpathians. The rates are highest for the Nowy Sacz Basin (Karpatian sediments), the south-east margin of the Orawa Basin (Domanski Wierch Cone: Sarmatian and late Pliocene sediments) and the Frydman Basin (early Pleistocene sediments), and lower for the central part of the Orawa Basin (Miocene and early Pliocene sediments) and the Mizerna Basin (late Pliocene to early Pleistocene sediments). The persistent subsidence along the northern border of the Pieniny Klippen Belt during the mid-late Miocene to early Pleistocene times coincides with the zone of a major structural break between the Inner and Outer Carpathians. The subsidence was here associated with faulting. The results obtained have a bearing on dating the stages of development of the relief in this part of the Carpathians. (d'après l'A.).
