Permo-Carboniferous magmatism and rifting in Europe
Geological Society Special Publications (2004) 223: 498 pp.


This Special Publication 223, priced at up to 47.50 ($ 79.00) to members, contains 20 chapters.The widespread extension which occurred within the Variscan orogen and its northern foreland during late Carboniferfous to early Permian times was associated with magmatism and also with a fundamental change (at theWestphalian-Stephanian boundary) in the regional stress field. Rifting propagated across basment terrains, with different ages and thermal histories. [1] Permo-Carboniferous magmatism and rifting in Europe: introduction. M.Wilson, E.-R. Neumann, G.R. Davies,M.
