Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper describes the map-scale geometry of basement-involved fold and thrust structures occurring within an intracontinental convergence zone in the Central Western Carpathians (CWC) of Slovakia. A system of ductile basement/cover large-scale folds formed here by rotation of pre-existing, closely spaced, domino-type normal faults. However, the advancement of the wedge was likely accomplished by formation of a new thrust fault rooted in the ductile lower and/or middle crust
