Abstract

The Silica Nappe of the Inner West Carpathians consists of an essentially non-metamorphic, platform-type sedimentary complex of Mesozoic age. Palaeomagnetic samples were collected from 16 sites throughout the southern and northern Gemeric parts of this unit and from one site of the Mesozoic Meliata series which underlies the Silica Nappe in south Gemer. Detailed analysis of the directional data showed a) post-folding magnetization for four late Triassic-Jurassic sites in the eastern Slovak Karst, b) synfolding magnetization for five sites in the western Slovak Karst with a direction corresponding to local palaeomagnetic data of African affinity for the late Cretaceous and c) primary magnetizations in the northern Gemeric area for only two rock units with a declination difference which implies a relative rotation between these units. -from Authors
