Probing electrical conductivity of the Trans-European Suture Zone



The Trans-European Suture Zone (TESZ) is the largest tectonic boundary in Europe, crossing northwest-southeast through central Europe from the North Sea to the Black Sea. More than 2000 kilometers long, it constitutes a complex transition between the thick and cold East European Craton (EEQ/Baltic Shield, created more than 650 million years ago (Ma) during the Precambrian, and the warmer, younger Paleozoic (650 to 250 Ma) central European mobile belts.
