The project has performed critical analysis of the existing, considerable confusing classification of orthogneisses and related leucocratic metamorphic rocks of the Moldanubian Zone. Project results contribute to an improved knowledge of this important rock type. Individual types of the orthogneisses and related leucocratic metamorphic rocks were characterised both mineralogically and chemically.
