Abstract

A new structural setting for the central part of the External Ligurian Briançonnais (CELB) is proposed. CELB is divided into km-scale tectonic units that still preserve pre-Alpine geological features at several stratigraphic levels. Several features indicate that the CELB tectonic evolution took place at shallow crustal levels. A gradual decrease in the intensity of deformation from the Internal Ligurian Briançonnais to CELB and Dauphinois Domain is observed, although the boundaries of these three domains correspond, in the study area, to several Km-long, transgressive shear zones whose kinematic role in the evolution of the southern termination of the Western Alps should be carefully considered. - (NF)
