The Upper Paleozoic, Permian-Carboniferous basins exist in the study area, forming narrow trough-like, often asymmetric depressions already independent on the course of the main Variscan orogeny
The likely causes of these events were Carboniferous terrane accretion and collision during the Variscan orogeny
in central Europe, which peaked in Visean times.
The NE-SW-trending ALCUDIA Model is located to the west of the CVP and crosses transversally the NW-SE-to WNW-ESE-trending structures of the CIZ formed in the Variscan orogeny
Tectonometamorphic evolution includes evidence of a subductive event during Variscan Orogeny
(360 Ma), followed by exhumation through recumbent folds and ductile thrusts to the E (present coordinates) during collisional stages (345 Ma) and extensional collapse at 315 Ma (Martinez Catalan et al.
ABSTRACT: In order to establish a lithospheric scale scenario in which the geologic record is in agreement with the theoretical topographical evolution that results from lithospheric delamination process that took place at the end of the Variscan orogeny
within the NW of the Iberian peninsula.

Older granitic rocks are usually influenced by Variscan orogeny
Numerous occurrences of different types (Sn-W, P, Pb-Zn, Pb-Zn-Cu, Pb-Ag, Sb, Au) have originated as a result of intensive collisional magmatic activity and regional metamorphism during Variscan orogeny
(Gumiel and Arribas, 1990).
The Prague Basin, Tepla-Barrandian Unit, Czech Republic, is a large Ordovician to Devonian basin which was tilted during Variscan Orogeny
The last events of the Variscan orogeny
are characterised in central Spain (and in many other western Variscan massifs) by a widespread felsic magmatism, with abundant granite intrusions emplaced in the range ~310-298 Ma (e.
The Variscan Orogeny
generated a huge volume of granitic melts.
For example we can imagine the DCTZ as a tectonical system, which was in recent form created in Tertiary, but its origin and its main role was taken in the end of Variscan orogeny
and in the Mesozoic period.
