    The tectonic evolution of the Alpine belt in Crete was created by north-dipping, Miocene-Cretaceous subduction between Apulia and a Gondwana-derived microcontinent called Mesogea with Europe (Creutzburg and Seidel, ; Le Pichon and Angelier, ; Seidel et al., ; Bonneau, ; Hall et al., ).South-vergent nappes, which moved along north-dipping thrusts partially along underlying Cited by: When Manfred Gwinner dared to write a book summarizing the geology of the Alps for the uninitiated, the first sentence in his preface (of both editions: , ) was a south-vergent slices in front and atop the Suretta Nappe is, in my view, worth The geosynclinal theory of mountain build-.

The nappe theory developed in the Western Alps, but was soon exported to the Eastern Alps, and then to the rest of the globe, by the Swiss geologist Emile Argand ( - ), who between to draw the first profile of the Penninic zone and then represented the structural setting of the entire Western Alps in a , tectonic map and corresponding cross-sections.

    The theory of plate tectonics was one of the great scienti ic revolutions of the twentieth century and is fundamental to our understanding of how mountain ranges like the Alps are built.

The nappe theory was established and again progressed in the Western Alps, reaching world-wide dimension thanks to the genius of Emile Argand (71, 37, 25). 4, 5, 6 first reconstructed the metamorphic nappes of the Penninic zone and then represented the structural setting of the entire Western Alps in atectonic map and by: In Gagnebin earned the licence in natural and physical sciences and became assistant to Maurice Lugeon, a specialist in the tectonics of Switzerland and one of the first advocates of the nappe theory of the Alps.

He began geological researches toward his doctorate in ; they dealt with the Préalpes Bordières and the region of Ch. Seen at first as evidence of von Buch’s theory of magmatic rocks uplifting sedimentary layers, nowadays it is seen as a example of the Alpine nappe structure.

Here partial erosion removed part of the nappe, forming a tectonic window, where the oldest rocks found in the Alps remerge to the surface.

He is also regarded as a specialist in tectonics, who was among the first to understand nappes (rocks sheets that are pressed to move sideways), explaining the complex structure of the Pennine and Western Alps.
