A detailed study of the structure and evolution of the Glueckstadt Graben (GG) shows
that the main phase of subsidence occurred during Late Triassic (Keuper) times. This
subsidence was strongly affected by Permian (Zechstein and Rotliegend) salt movement with
formation of very complicated structures of Upper Triassic sedimentary succession.
Furthermore, the deepest part of the GG partially formed as “rim syncline” at least within
southern part in Late Triassic. It is possible, that the Triassic GG an inherited structure from
Late Paleozoic (Early Permian).
