Abstract

Seismic stratigraphic analyses and studies of core samples from three wells indicate that infilling of the Pannonian basin of Hungary resulted primarily from deltaic sedimentation from the northwest, north, and northeast. Infilling of the basin involved a single cycle of sedimentation which probably began in Sarmatian or earliest Pannonian time when water depths in the basin were > 1,000 m. The subsequent history of the basin, during Pannonian and Quaternary time, reflects continuously shoaling waters. This shoaling resulted from sediment input rates that were generally higher than basin subsidence rates.
