Description

From Imaggeo.egu.eu: Stratigraphic section from the Greek Alpine Orogeny belt. The Alpine Orogeny was a massive deformation event (when lots of land was pushed together via plate tectonics) around 66 million years ago across the entire southern edge of Europe and Asia starting in Java and ending at the Atlantic. http://imaggeo.egu.eu/view/1026/
