Oceans, Islands and Volcanoes Of The Geologic Past In The Romanian Carpathian Mountains
Wednesday 13 December 2017, 02:00am

Speaker: Mihai Ducea

Professor of Geology, University of Arizona, Department of Geosciences

Rocks making up the great Carpathian Mountains in Romania represent the time integrated products of geologic events that took place over approximately 550 million years. This talk is a journey through the space-time of how the Carpathians were assembled as volcanic islands formed off a major continental margin (part of what is today Africa) near the south pole, how these islands docked later to another continental land mass (Baltica) only to be again split and raft at the margin of a new ocean, known as Tethys. The closure of this ocean made the modern mountains, and its latest volcanic products, including a newly discovered active volcano in the East Carpathians.
