A4 Carboniferous Rhyo-Dacitic Calderas in Czech/German Border Region

The registration is closed. In case of interest please contact the IUGG Prague Secretariat.

Central Europe experienced periods of intense volcanic activity in Late Paleozoic post-dating the Variscan Orogeny. The excursion will visit two rhyo-dacitic calderas of Late Paleozoic age, Döhlen Basin with volcanosedimentary succession and two volcanic complexes in Saxony. The Döhlen Basin is a Permian basin controlled by the NW-SE-trending Elbe Lineament. The Early Permian North Saxonian Volcanic Complex is the largest outcrop of Late Paleozoic volcanics in Central Europe and it is dominated by extended welded ignimbrites with two pyroxenes and signs of magma mingling. Tharandt Forest Caldera (TFC) and the Altenberg-Teplice Volcanic Complex (ATVC) formed 310 - 326 million years ago; the ATVC hosts Sn, Li deposits, active hydrothermal systems and, since 11th century, also famous for its spas. The trip will include visits to Medieval Meissen and Freiberg towns and to a unique petrified forest in Chemnitz buried by phreatomagmatic pyroclastic deposits 290 Ma ago.

A5 Late Variscan Volcanism in Permo-Carboniferous Intracontinental Basins of the Sudetes (SW Poland)

The registration is closed. In case of interest please contact the IUGG Prague Secretariat

The formation of Late Paleozoic, post-collisional basins in the Bohemian Massif, in the eastern part of the European Variscan Belt, was associated with intermediate- to silicic-composition, often bimodal, intratracontinental volcanism. Rhyolitic and mafic lavas, ignimbrites and other pyroclastics erupted from several volcanic centres, with associated emplacement of high-level intrusions. Recent SHRIMP zircon age determinations, together with volcanological and petrological data, provide new insights into the timing, style and petrogenetic evolution of the Carboniferous and Permian volcanism in that region. Representative, most attractive sites, will be visited during this field trip in the Intra-Sudetic and the North-Sudetic basins, largely in the territory of Poland. The trip will be based at Wrocław, the capital of Lower Silesia, and selected attractions of the region, such as baroque, Benedictine and Cistersian monasteries (Broumov, Krzeszów) are included in the itinerary.
