Record #173121:

The Caledonian thin-skinned thrust belt of Kronprins Christian Land, eastern North Greenland / A.K. Higgins, N.J. Soper, M. Paul Smith, Jan Audun Rasmussen.

Title: The Caledonian thin-skinned thrust belt of Kronprins Christian Land, eastern North Greenland / A.K. Higgins, N.J. Soper, M. Paul Smith, Jan Audun Rasmussen.

Date: 2004.
In: Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland Bulletin. (2004.), Vol. 6 (2004)
Abstract: Analyses thin-skinned fold-and-thrust belt that marks transition between foreland and orogen in Kronprins Christian Land, and presents balanced cross-section restoration. Biostratigraphic control in limestone and dolostone succession is based on conodonts and macrofossils. Alteration colours of conodonts provide estimates of maximum burial temperatures, showing thickness of overlying thrust sheets ranged from about 6 to 12.5 km from west to east across thrust belt. Since estimated former thickness of Vandredalen thrust sheet above the thin-skinned parautochthonous thrust belt is insufficient to yield temperatures attained, higher thrust sheets must once have extended across region.
