The formation of the Lepontine gneiss dome
Episodes of horizontal extension of the Alpine orogenic crust were recognised decades ago, yet their influence on the thermal and tectonic structure has been either marginalised or neglected in models that were brought forward to explain the evolution of the Central European Alps. In this thesis, I present data from three extensional shear zones at the margins of the Lepontine gneiss dome in the Central Alps that allowed a quantification of the influence that horizontal extension had during the...[Show more]
