The project is focused on architecture of the Barrandian Prague Basin (Ordovician to Devonian between Prague and Plzeň), where the stratigraphy and palaeontology are well advanced but the data and reliable interpretations on tectonics are mostly absent. Previous data suggest variety of deformation styles, paleomagnetic directions, geochemical features, sedimentary facies and diagenetic alterations in individual units of the Basin. Pricipal goals of the project are to produce and interpret new data that will originate within a framework of cooperating working groups dealing with tectonics, paleomagnetism, geochemistry, facies and diagenesis. The project will cover the present voids in knowledge on nature and evolution of the Prague Basin fill, tectonic styles and deformational units. The project will contribute to the recent sum of informations on early evolution of Variscan terrane mosaic of the Bohemian Massif as a part of the Variscan central Europe.
