Abstract

The presence of two different coeval pre-flysch carbonate facies juxtaposed in numerous profiles in the southern part of the Moravian Karst proves that the Variscan nappe tectonics affected the pre-flysch basement of the main Culmian flysch nappes. Two main thrust events were recognized: (1) a ‘thin-skinned’ event, during which two sedimentary facies were juxtaposed along bedding sub-parallel thrusts, and (2) a ‘thick-skinned’ event, which generated younger thrusts oblique to bedding, involved crystalline rocks of the Brno Massif, and resulted in refolding of the older thrusts.
