      The Baltic Shield is a segment of the Earth's crust belonging to the East European Craton, representing a large part of Fennoscandia, northwestern Russia and the northern Baltic Sea. It is composed mostly of Archean and Proterozoic gneisses and greenstone which have undergone numerous deformations through tectonic activity. The Baltic Sea is cold, but its history has often run red-hot, as historian Alan Palmer makes clear in his book "The Baltic." Palmer, a prolific, Oxford-educated British historian, wishes to give the 21st-century reader "A New History of the Region and Its People" (the book's subtitle).Cited by: 7.

    The Baltic Sea is cold, but its history has often run red-hot, as historian Alan Palmer makes clear in his book The , a prolific, Oxford-educated British historian, wishes to give the 21st-century reader A New History of the Region and Its People (the books subtitle). He does so in a thorough and conscientious manner, covering the Baltic regions history from the earliest known /5. I n the past there was a perception that Proterozoic gold deposits were relatively small and unimportant (Hutchinson, ; Woodall, ).However, the contribution from Proterozoic gold deposits has increased significantly in the last ten years due to recent exploration success in regions such as Africa, South America, and northern Australia, together with historical production from areas.

    The obtained [+ or -] 6 Ma magmatic crystallization age of the Velaiciai-2 granodiorite agrees well with the latest Palaeoproterozoic-early Mesoproterozoic extension of the crust and widespread AMCG and A-type granitoid magmatism in Estonia and Latvia as well as Finland and Sweden in the Baltic suggest that all these processes, including the development of the EW-trending. The motivation for this volume came from the idea that the Precambrian is the key, both to the present, and to the understanding of the Earth as a whole. The Precambrian constitutes about 85% of Earths history, and of that, about billion years of Precambrian time, represented by rocks, are accessible to geoscientists. Ancient atmospheric and environmental conditions can be traced back to.

A subduction-related horizontal accretion is suggested for the crust of North America and the Baltic shield, but a vertical accretion is favored for the Australian crust. A collisional orogeny is recorded in the north of the shield by a narrow belt of early Proterozoic crust separating two Archaean crustal segments.

In the central Baltic Shield, westward growth of continental crust occurred during the Svecokarelian (– Ga) and Gothian (– Ga) by: Sources of Early and Middle Proterozoic magmas in the Makkovik Province, Labrador: evidence from Nd isotape data/A. Kerr and B.J.

The East European Craton (EEC) is the core of the Baltica proto-plate and consists of three crustal regions/segments: Fennoscandia to the northwest, Volgo-Uralia to the east, and Sarmatia to the south. Fennoscandia includes the Baltic Shield (also referred to as the Fennoscandian Shield) and has a diversified accretionary Archaean and early Proterozoic crust, while Sarmatia has an older.

the Archaean and early Proterozoic, to about Ga years ago. In the Gulf of Bothnia, the Baltic Sea and the countries on the eastern and southern sides of the Baltic Sea, the Proterozoic bedrock of the Svecofennian Province continues underneath a cover of sedimentary rocks of Mesoproterozoic, Palaeozoic and in the south up to Tertiary age.

The Early Proterozoic orogens of North America, Greenland, and the Baltic Shield contain evidence of major accretion of new, and major reworking of older, continental crust (Fig.

This is the primary objective of this book. The book was conceived in order to provide a comprehensive review of the basic rocks produced during the first half of the Precambrian, i.e. the Archaean and early Proterozoic, to about Ga years ago.

Two major questions are addressed. 1 Introduction and Tectonic Setting. The Fennoscandian region in the centre of the Baltic Shield resulted from a series of tectonic processes which involved several episodes of crustal accretion over Ga (Gorbatschev & Bogdanova ).During the Proterozoic, the Archean terranes underwent fragmentation, reworking and reassemblage with belts of newly formed by: Proterozoic glaciations • Early Proterozoic glaciation to by - - tillites from Canada, United States, Australia, and South Africa • Late Proterozoic glaciation ("Varangian") to my "Snow Ball Earth" Critical effect of the Proterozoic glaciations on theevolution of the biosphere.
