Jungtertiäre und quartäre Tektonik in der NE-Spitze der Merziger Grabenmulde

Erwin Müller, Ludwig Zöller & Hans-Peter Konzan
Based on a more detailed petrographic stratigraphy of the sedimentary „Ober-rotliegendes" and a geological mapping in the scale 1 : 5 000 we tried to find out the tectonic pattern and tectonic phases in the northeastern edge of the Merziger Graben Syncline. Older (youngerpaleozoic-mesozoic?) graben tectonics can be separated from younger (plio-pleistocene?) fault block patterns, which occured mainly along NW—SE and NNW—SSE directed faults, and which are presumably responsible for plio-pleistocene changing of the river...
