The complex tectonic history of the French Alps is beautifully exposed in the Briançonnais
Zone. Extensional features in the external zone reveal how a complex series of faultcontrolled
sub-basins controlled the deposition of Mesozoic marine carbonates and shales.
We then travel towards the core of compression to investigate changes in structural style
with increasing deformation. The structures evident in this region provide insight into how
basin-forming structures can be inverted and deformed during periods of compression.
This field trip can also be delivered in conjunction with our courses on Structural Geology,
Rift Basins or Basin Analysis.
