The Makó-Hódmezoväsárhély trench, situated in the southeastern part of Hungary, is filled with more than 7 km of thick Miocene to Holocene sedimentary rocks. Seismic profiles, stratification features in core samples, grain size distributions, and well logs in three boreholes clearly reveal a shoaling-upward sequence within the trough. We have distinguished five principal depositional environments that we interpret (from bottom to top) as: coarse-grained basal turbidites; deep basin fine-grained sediments; delta front turbidites; delta slope sand, silt, and marl; and shallow lake to braided stream deposits.
