Abstract

This chapter summarizes the present data on the change of the thickness of the lithosphere in the Carpathian-Pannonian region obtained by seismics and seismology, and magnetotelluric and gravity studies, emphasizing the updoming of the asthenosphere below the Pannonian Basin in accordance with its high heat flow. Important conclusions have been drawn from the stripped gravity map concerning the deep crustal structures, including the intrusion in the narrow subbasins. Special attention is paid to the narrow rift zone of the Bekes subbasin with high-density mafic intrusion in its crust and the elevation of Moho and asthenosphere during the rifting as it was stated by reflection seismics and interpretation of magnetotelluric sounding measurements and supported by stripped gravity map and gravity modeling.
