The European portion of the Eurasian plate formed as a result of a complex series of tectonic events that included the Caledonian, Variscan, and Carpathian orogenies. These orogenic events occurred along the western margin of the East European craton (a portion of the paleocontinent Baltica). In recognition of the complexity of the rifting that formed this margin in the Neoproterozoic-Cambrian and the subsequent tectonic events along it, the region adjacent to this margin has been called the Trans-European suture zone. In order to understand the processes at work during these tectonic events, a series of large integrated geophysical and geological...
