The Alps, Carpathians and Dinarides form a complex, highly curved and strongly coupled orogenic system. Motions of the European and Adriatic plates gave birth to a number of 'oceans' and microplates that led to several distinct stages of collision.

Although the Alps serve as a classical example of collisional orogens, it becomes clearer that substantial questions on their 1/5(1). Bruce Railsback has generated a photocopy-and-bind textbook called Alpine and Glacial immediate purpose is to meet the needs of a course called "Alpine and Glacial Geology" in the University of New Orleans-Innsbruck summer program.

That course is open to all students, with no prerequisites, but covers the advanced topics of alpine geology and glacial. The position of the continents by 50 million years ago looked quite similar to that of today. The Alpine Orogeny occurred mainly between 65 and million years ago, although it is still active today.

It saw the collision of the African and Eurasian plates, and the closure of the Tethys Ocean as oceanic lithosphere was subducted northwards beneath the Eurasian Plate, leaving today. The Alpine orogeny or Alpide orogeny is an orogenic phase in the Late Mesozoic (Eoalpine) and the current Cenozoic that has formed the mountain ranges of the Alpide mountains include (from west to east) the Atlas, the Rif, the Baetic Cordillera, the Cantabrian Mountains, the Pyrenees, the Alps, the Apennine Mountains, the Dinaric Alps, the Pindus (Hellenides), the.
