  Abstract:  This monograph represents the result of several years of research between Austrian and German scientists in the Alpine area. Following a brief introduction, the tectonostratigraphic evolution of the Austroalpine domain is discussed. The sedimentological and facies features of each formation are described in relationship with the geodynamic evolution of the region. Evidence was shown that the Triassic-inherited peculiarities of the Lower Jurassic formations were related to changes due to the partial closure of the Neotethys Ocean during the Middle Jurassic. Moreover, these changes lead to the obduction of ophiolites and the overthrust of tectonic nappes resulting in the formation of deep, trench-like basins.
