Short summary
The thermal evolution of the East European Platform is reconstructed by means of thermal maturity and low-temperature thermochronometry. Results showed that major heating occurred before the Permian, with maximum paleotemperatures in the earliest and latest Carboniferous for Baltic–Podlasie and Lublin basins, respectively. The Mesozoic thermal history was characterized by gradual cooling from peak temperatures at the transition from Triassic to Jurassic due to decreasing heat flow.
