|Title: ||Comment on ‘‘Geodynamic evolution of the SW Europe|
|Authors: ||Pereira, M. Francisco|

|Abstract: ||Ribeiro et al.  have presented a geodynamic
view of the SW Iberia Variscides based on data from
Portugal. Their treatment of already published data is commendable,
and the knowledge gained will surely encourage
the discussion of the SWEurope Variscides. However, in our
opinion, Ribeiro et al.’s modeling and interpretation of the
Ediacaran–Lower Ordovician ( 560–470 Ma) geodynamic
evolution are of limited value. In this regard, they based their
analysis of the Ossa-Morena Zone (OMZ) on assumptions
which are contradicted by recent published data. Ribeiro et al.
ignored recent progress in the OMZ Ediacaran-Ordovician
stratigraphy and, as a consequence they misunderstood
the structure of domains overprinted by strong Variscan
(Carboniferous) deformation and metamorphism.|
