Abstract

The eastern margin of the Bohemian massif is a classical area where the Variscan nappe tectonics has been known since the early work of Suess. According to the concept of Suess (1912, 1926), the Moldanubian unit, consisting of high-grade metamorphic rocks including HP relics, over-thrusted from west the Moravian unit, characterized by medium- to low-grade metamorphism. The high-grade schists and gneisses at the base of the Moldanubian nappe were strongly retrogressed during eastward overthrusting, thus giving rise to micaschists.
