A new review paper co-authored by Ondrej Lexa deals with a synthesis of paleomagnetic data in the Variscan belt. Significant conclusions about the movements and rotations of the most important continental blocks involved in the Pangea assembly are extracted. These data are correlated with palaeomagnetic records from Gondwana and Baltica in order to provide a large-scale geodynamic framework of the European Variscides during the Carboniferous to Permian times.
