Exogenic anticlines in the Podhale region

Stanisław Ostaficzuk

Abstract


Small anticlinal forms which occur in the flysch deposits of the synclinal basin of Podhale (Central Carpathians), as evidenced by their morphology, dimensions and location, have developed simultaneously with erosion along the stream valleys and resulted from such exogenig processes as groundwater swell, initial landsliding, decompression, and squeezing and bulging, all of them coinciding to a variable extent. Despite their insignificant dimensions, these anticlines complicate the tectonic framework of the Podhale flysch) and may lead to false geologic diagnoses.
