The aim of the project is reconstruction of neotectonic activity within the eastern segment of the Mür-Orava Basin Fault Zone. Field work will focus on fill of basins and on faults which compose the zone. Field studies will comprise studies of: (1) fault-planes, (2) joints, (3) deformation bands and, (4) fractured clasts. Field work will be supplemented by laboratory studies of: (1) vitrinite reflectance, (2) clay minerals and, (3) microscopic analysis. The goal of field and laboratory studies is construction of model of tectonic development of study object during Neogene and Quaternary times.
