The juxtaposition of the ALCAPA and Tisza–Dacia continental blocks, although one of the key issues in the evolution of the Carpathians, is not well known in terms of associated effects on the sedimentary systems during frontal foreland development. Most of the contact between ALCAPA and Tisza–Dacia being covered by post-tectonic deposits, these effects can best be observed in northern Romania. Sedimentological data on facies, palaeocurrents and modal composition of sandstones combined with micropalaeontological data and 2D well-calibrated seismic lines constrain the tectonic history of the contact zone between ALCAPA and Tisza–Dacia. Pervasive deposition of sand-dominated siliciclastics beginning in late...
