Neotectonic Movements

Neotectonic Movements

 

tectonic movements that occurred during the Neogene and Anthropogenic periods of the geologic history of the earth. The principal features of the present relief were formed as a result of these movements.

The reasons for seismic activity in this region can be related to neotectonic movements (including glacio-isostatic rebound) as recorded in the southeastern Baltic Sea area of the Fennoscandian ice sheet margin zone.
The problem of determining neotectonic movements in the Bochnia salt mine lies in separating tectonic from human-induced movements.
Further implementation of OSL dating, and particularly the introduction of cosmogenic radionuclide dating (CRN), is essential to surpass that limitation and to better characterize the timing of the neotectonic movements (uplift/subsidence and fault slip) and to estimate strain rates.

Previous interpretations of neotectonic movements occurring in the Fore-Sudetic Block assumed reactivation of main faults that were already formed in the Variscan orogeny, an in the Opole Depression also during the Late Cretaceous--Early Palaeogene orogeny.
Differential neotectonic movements on either side of this thrust (uplift in the south and subsidence in the north) made their appearance also in the last glacial and Holocene times.
This type of alternation of morphostructures, which shows varying rates of neotectonic movements, may reflect either concurrent isostatic adjustment or Quaternary remnant folding (Zuchiewicz, 1991).
