Talk:Baltic Shield

Why is Fennoscandian Shield redirected to this Baltic Shield page? I find this term confusing since the Baltic States are not on the "Baltic Shield". I am going to copy the relevant information to the link Fennoscandian Shield and change the terminology. Is this ok?

The "Baltic Shield" is the same as the "Fennoscandian Shield" and both terms are in use, depending on habit. However, the latter term has been forced by Finnish geologists only 10 years ago, but the former was entered in the literature already at the end of the 19th century. All the Baltic States 'are not' on the Baltic Shield. Formerly, the "Baltic States" only referred to those countries with access to the Baltic Sea. In any case, this is irrelevant as to what constitutes the Baltic Shield.

The big confusion is the use of the term "Baltic Shield" to apply to all of the "Baltica Plate." See the note that I added at the end of this article. Valich 21:26, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

The term "Fennoscandian Shield" is certainly older than ten years, and claiming that Finnish geologists somehow "forced" the term sounds rather odd, to say the least. The map would be better if the names were in English rather than the direct transliterations of Russian terms that they now are (e.g., Caledonides rather than Kaledonidy). The map is also slightly inaccurate in that the estern part of the Varangian Peninsula in NE Norway is shown as belonging to the Kola Massif when it actually belongs to the Caledonides.--Death Bredon (talk) 13:25, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Depth discrepancy?Edit

On the Kola Borehole page, it gives the thickness of the baltic shield at around 35 kilometers. This agrees well with the estimates of crust thickness in the plate tectonics and continental crust pages. The figure of 250-300 km thickness on this page looks like a typo to me.

Yes, but on the other hand 35 km sounds too thin.--Jyril 19:57, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Number of glaciationsEdit

"...five successive Pleistocene glaciations and subsequent retreats..."

There has been certainly much more than five glaciation periods during Pleistocene (see timeline of glaciation).--Jyril 19:57, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Baltic Shield thicknessEdit

A paper by A.C. Johnston, Science v. 274, 1996 Nov 01, p. 735 gives the depth as 48 km to the Moho.

As a note in addition to the template, I'm sorry for those who have put time into improving the prior version of the article, particularly since the problem had been identified and the content removed five years ago.
