Reflection of the sediment accumulation process within the Prypiat' paleorift in the gravity field dynamics

© G.I. Karataev

Palaeostructural cross sections and density models of sedimentary deposits are compiled for the main phases of the evolution of the Pripyat Trough during the Hercynian time. Corresponding riftogenesis phases of the gravity field were calculated. The gravity field dynamics which reflects a sedimentation process within the Pripyat Palaeorift, was studied. If was shown that the gravity field dynamics could be used to restore the structure of the Pripyat Palaeorift at the compressional stage the geologic information on which was absent until the present time.
