The closure of the Neotethys in two episodes: first. as a result of Jurassic to Early Cretaceous obduction and second, as a result of Early Palaeocene collision; a comparison of surface geology and tomography (Central Internal Hellenides, Greece)

Rudolph Scherreiks & Camille BouDagher-Fadel
This contribution concerns Neotethys palaeogeography in the Central Internal Hellenides. Neotethys oceanic crust is represented in the Vardar zone of the Hellenides by the ophiolites of the Almopias sub-zone. Contrary to numerous tectonic models in the literature, we show that the Almopias ocean closed in two episodes.
