Middle-Late Paleozoic geodynamics and structure of Gorny Altai are studied with reference to gravity data. The northern and central parts of the area belong to the Gorny Altai terrane consisting of Late Precambrian-Paleozoic rocks originated in different tectonic settings on the Siberian continental margin, including Devonian active-margin volcanoplutonic complexes. In the south and east, the Gorny Altai terrane borders the Altai-Mongolia terrane along the Charysh-Terekta-Ulagan shear zone. The Altai-Mongolia terrane is composed of Early Paleozoic turbidites of the Kazakhstan-Baikal continent, Middle Paleozoic collisional garnet-disthene-andalusite schists, and Late Paleozoic zoned andalusite-cordierite schists, with granitic plutons on their periphery. The pattern of these complexes is similar to that of Cenozoic volcanoplutonic and metamorphic domes in the Kamchatka and Chukchi Peninsulas. The Devonian volcanoplutonic complexes from the Gorny Altai terrane and the Middle-Late Paleozoic metamorphic complexes from the Altai-Mongolia terrane are well evident in the gravity field.
