Abstract (in english)
   Chemical analyses of detrital garnets from the Jurrasic sediments of the Pieniny Klippen Belt and from the Central Western Carpathians yielded important information with possible application in the paleogeographic investigations in Mesozoic of the Western Carpathians. From the Pieniny Klippen Belt, five samples of the Lower Jurassic rocks were analysed from localities Klape (Klape Unit?), Manín Narrows (Manín Unit), Sedliacka Dubová, Lúty Potok and Krásna Horka (the latter three samples are from the Nižná Unit). Along with these samples, Middle Jurassic samples from Hatné (Czorsztyn Unit), Vršatec (Czorsztyn Unit) and Horné Srnie-Samášky (Pruské Unit) were analysed, too. From the Central Western carpathians, three samples were analysed from localities Malý Šiprúň (Tatric Unit of the Velká Fatra Mts.), Čierťaže (Krížna nappe, Fatricum of the Malá Fatra Mts.) and Prašník (Nedzov nappe, Hronicum?, Čachtické Karpaty Mts.).
   Along with some usual almandinic garnets, all the samples from the Pieniny Klippen Belt (including Klape and Manín units) contained predominantly garnets with higher pyrope component (Mg) which reached 30 to 50%. Their likely source-rocks were granulites and eclogites which, however, lack in the Central Western Carpathian crystalline complexes and even in the neigbouring Brunovistulicum (easternmost zone of the Bohemian Massif). Their source can be placed to the Moldanubian Zone of the Bohemian Massif, from which also the basement crustal segments of the Pieniny Klippen Belt units (including even the Manín and Klape? units) might be derived. The closest granulite occurrences are situated in the Moldanubian Zone, only about 130-140 km west of the recent westernmost outcrops of the Pieniny Klippen Belt. Relatively rich concents of such garnets, together with exotic granulitic pebbles, were reported also from the Flysch Belt.
   They also indicate a source area of detrial material with granulites and eclogites similar to the Moldanubian Zone. In the Central Western Carpathian samples, garnets compositionally close to those from the Tatric-Veporic crystalline complexes were found
