Characteristic Features of Humid Rock Formation in the Principal Structural Elements of the Earth’s Crust
In the evolution of humid rocks and formations, a decisive role is played, as we have shown, by the geomorpho-tectonic conditions existing at that time in any particular area of the humid belts. Since these conditions have been substantially different on platforms and in geosynclinal zones, both during the stage of normal development and during the final closing stage, it follows that rocks and their complex associations in formations, which develop in these tectonic elements, acquire some specific features, permitting us to speak of special historical geological types of platform and geosynclinal humid rock formation. The characteristics of these types were described in a general way by the author as early as 1946; below are presented the principal features applying to humid zones.
