The Variscan belt: correlations and plate dynamics

Abstract : The new series of international conferences focused on the Palaeozoic evolution of the European lithosphere started in 2007 in Orléans, followed by the successful meeting in 2012 in Sassari, and the last one in 2015 in Rennes. The first conference was dedicated to mechanical aspects of the Variscan orogeny and resulted in a highly successful Special Issue of Comptes Rendus Geoscience published in 2009. The second, Sassari conference was devoted to the extent and time scales of formation of the European crust and resulted in a number of excellent papers published in the form of a Special Publication of the Geological Society of London (# 405, 2014). The last, Rennes conference, was dedicated to the correlations and plate dynamics across the European Variscan belt and resulted in the current special issue of the International Journal of Earth Sciences.
