.... As a consequence, NE–SW-trending basins in the Variscan foreland have been strongly inverted, the Silesian post-rift fill has commonly been expelled from the basins and the syn-rift sediments have been deformed by chevron folds (Dublin and Bowland Basins). In contrast, the N–S- and NW–SE-trending faults were...
