Ziegler 1988, 1990). The northwest European Caledonian triple junction had been established with its centre lying in the northern part of the present North Sea (Figure 2-4). Its western leg, the AvaloniaLaurentia suture, corresponds to the Solway line (marked 1 in Figure 2-4) across the British Isles (Matthews and the BIRPS Group 1990, Klemperer and Hurich 1990); whilst the eastern leg, the Avalonia-Baltica suture, is presumably indicated by the Trans-European fault, shown as 2 in Figure 2-4 (EUGENO-S Working Group 1988).

The experiment and data processing have been described in detail by Lund (1983) and Guggisberg (1986). The northernmost part (Figure 3-1) of the profile is located on the Caledonian nappes which are thrust over the Archean terranes. About 200 km south of shotpoint FG the profile crosses from the Archean to the Proterozoic Sveco-Fennian units and N SVECO-FENNIAN CRUSTAL PROVINCE Skellefte Field ARCHAEAN CRUSTAL PROVINCE SCANDINAVIAN CALEDONIDES Baltic-Bothnian Megashear FI 500 1000 Distance (km) SVECO-FENNIAN N PROVINCE Trans-Scandinavian Batholith Shotpoints (b) CRUSTAL 1000 FE FD Blekinge Coastal Gneiss FB 1500 Distance (km) Figure 3-4.

In other words, the English-North German-Polish Caledonides were brought to their present position in Europe as a 'ready-made' terrane collage, whose overall structure became but little modified by later Caledonian overprints. On faunal evidence, it has been argued that Baltica and Avalonia could not have been widely separated and then again brought into juxtaposition by long-range drift or strike-slip displacements because they share a common Early Cambrian 'Baltic' trilobite fauna (Bergstrom 1984).
