"THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE PRINCIPAL TYPES OF OROGENESIS IN THE VARISCICUM AND IN THE ALPIDICUM OF CENTRAL EUROPE"

W. Schwan

INTRODUCTION


Central Europe is one of the best explored regions of the earth. Inspite of that, there are still different views about the particular principal type of orogenesis of both the Variscan Mountains and the Alps. Some authors consider the Variscicum as well as the Alpidicum of Central Europe as being autochthonous, others as being of allochthonous character. So from time to time there have been violent discussions about this problem.
