The development of the recent drainage system in the Rhenish Mountains started during Late Oligocene by the Alpine orogenesis. Still the Early Tertiary time the drainage on the strongly weathered Variscans took place by unlarged flushing areas and meandring rivers. During the uplift of the Rhenish Massif these rivers in its meandring manner were leaded down to the Variscan body, and directed toward the Rhine main river. The change from the system of flushing areas to linear erosion by river drainage is called the Morphogenetic Upheaval, dated Late Oligocene. The volcanism during the Miocene was caused by the uplift of the Rhenish Massif. - (L'A.)
