Abstract

The mid-Cretaceous onset of the Alpine uplift of previously buried pre-Tertiary basement and cover rock units is recorded in the southern Central West Carpathian zones in the Veporic superunit. The Meso-Cenozoic collisional processes gradually continued by the uplift of more external Tatric units during the Paleogene, Neogene and Quaternary. The south to north Veporic and southernmost Tatric zones began to be uplifted from the depth levels of ca. 20 km 120-90 Ma ago. They reached ca. 100°C 90-55 Ma ago. On the contrary, the Tatric pre-Alpine complexes have not been buried deeper than 12 km after the Permian. Their uplift is documented by zircon and apatite FT data. It started from depths of 10-11 km about 70-50 Ma ago and reached the 5 km depth level 30-15 Ma ago. Besides the time differences, the dynamic background of uplift in the Veporic and Tatric zone was also apparently different. -from Authors
