Quaternary faulting in the Tatra Mountains, evidence from cave morphology and fault-slip analysis

Article English OPEN
Szczygieł Jacek;

Tectonically deformed cave passages in the Tatra Mts (Central Western Carpathians) indicate some fault activity during the Quaternary. Displacements occur in the youngest passages of the caves indicating (based on previous U-series dating of speleothems) an Eemian or yo... View more
