The Holy Cross area, Central Poland, in the Alpine cycle

Jan Kutek, Jerzy Głazek


Evidence is presented that a distinct elevation never existed in the area of the present Holy Cross Mts during Permian and Mesozoic time. This area as well as that of the present San anticlinorium were embraced within the Danish-Polish trough and were subsequently subjected to tectonic inversion at the turn of the Cretaceous and Tertiary. Thus, the whole Middle-Polish anticlinorium, was generated in a similar way by Laramide movements on the site of the preceding Danish-Polish trough. Some other tectonic and paleogeographic problems, concerning mainly the Holy Cross Mts and the Middle-Polish anticlinorium, are also discussed.
