The Caledonide orogen: Scandinavia and related areas Unknown Binding – January 1, See all formats and editions Hide other formats and editions Price. This book covers the geology of the Caledonide orogen in Scandinavia, set in the framework of the North Atlantic Caledonides.

A large part of the volume describes the orogen regionally and summarizes the Late Proterozoic and Early Palaeozoic history and treating a wide range of ongoing : Hardcover. This thematic set of 10 papers The Caledonide orogen book with deformation and metamorphism in the Caledonian and Appalachian orogens arose from part of a conference which was held in Dublin The Caledonide orogen book September as part of IGCP Project 27 (The Caledonide Orogen).
