Abstract

The Pannonian basin is an area of late Tertiary subsidence. Geophysical features such as an updoming of the mantle, a thinned lower crust, and a strong geothermal anomaly are all restricted to the basin within its geologic boundaries. Three theories are offered for the formation of the basin: (1) a gabbro-eclogite phase transition, (2) lithospheric stretching, or (3) mantle diapirism.
