Platform covers tectonic zoning: case of the East European platform
The paper deals with the method of compiling tectonic maps (sketch-maps) of platform areas using the East European Platform as an example and describes its major, mainly superorder structures as applicable to the Central European Serial Legend (CES Legend).
Structural forms of all the identified structural stages (their geology aspects, occurrence conditions, assemblages of sets of formations typical of sedimentation basins) and links with the framing mobile belts are described in accordance with the developed methodology for tectonic map compilation based on historical-geological and structural-material principles. The description of each stage of tectonic evolution, dynamics and the change of movement vectors is given.
These maps are used in various sections of sets of State Maps 1000 and 200, in particular for the production of serial legends, their interconnection, for the correct approach to structuralfacies zoning, compilation of mineral maps, location patterns maps, and forecast maps.
Keywords: tectonic, zoning, East European platform, structural stages, formation.
