Untitled[edit]

This apparently is the article from the first decade of the last Century. It is reflects nothing of modern geology, in particular plate tectonics. It is fine as a period piece, but serves little use for the first decade of this Century in terms of geology. -- 209.249.180.101

Is this 1911EB?[edit]

Is this article from the 1911 Encyclopedia Brittanica? Should it then be credited as such? Gwimpey 19:32, 6 Jul 2004 (UTC)

If it's that invalid, it should be stripped of all but the basics, or even deleted and a new article started. --DanielCD 15:10, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)

I digested some of the older stuff and wrote a new article with a modern outlook. Tried to minimize jargon and make it easy to understand. Added new info where relevant. Could use a proofread. --DanielCD 21:26, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)

mistake[edit]

A big mistake occurs in the first line of this article: the Alps does not come from the Tethys Ocean but from the "Alpine Tethys", "liguro-piemontais ocean" or "alpine ocean" (all these name are used). This ocean oppened from Liassic to Cretaceous times, and close during the upper Cretaceous. Geojide 19:20, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

Agree, we have a Prototethys, a Paleotethys, a Neotethys and an Alpine Tethys (Paratethys). --Chris.urs-o (talk) 00:50, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

New version[edit]

I've deleted the Britannica text. I might come back and try to incorporate some of it into the proper article, but it doesn't belong here any more than phlogiston belongs at combustion. Hasty Fool 19:03, 28 May 2006 (UTC) I'll come back and work on this article :) Hasty Fool 19:08, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

I am writing a much more structured article (and subarticles) in the Dutch wikipedia (see interwiki: Nederlands; if you don't know Dutch that's no problem since the titles will be understandable) on the geology of the Alps. When it is finished I can translate it and merge it with the current article. Any geologist-users are more than welcome to look at it and help edit it. Please don't edit the current text too much so I have time to work on merging the two texts. Woodwalker 17:29, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

No problem, I'll leave it all to you. Unfortunately I don't speak Dutch! Hasty Fool 06:59, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

Here is my new version, translated from the Dutch version. Please help me by checking it, it was quite a story to translate and i may have made some mistakes (also in the translation). I used the Dutch wikipedia more or less as a kindergarten, but there are so little people there who know something about geology that the article can contain untruths. I will upload the map later. Woodwalker 11:12, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

Looks great on first go-over - I've done a bit of error checking & minor fixes, will look over it closer later. Vsmith 23:14, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

Thanx, can you also look at the subarticles mentioned in the template, please? I will add refs and literature later. Now going to bed. Woodwalker 23:17, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

map[edit]

Just a quick post, I stumbled on this geological map which looks to cover the region in good detail, it might be some use as a source. EdwardLane (talk) 09:10, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
