Abstract

Paleomagnetic investigation of sedimentary and volcanic rocks of the East Slovak Basin gave information about the counterclockwise (CCW) rotation of the Neogene units of Eggenburgian to Middle Sarmatian age. The Eggenburgian sediments (1 loc. 20 spec.) show about 80°CCW rotation, the zeolitized rhyolite tuffs of Lower Badenian age (2 loc. 19 spec.) show a 40°-60°CCW rotation, the rhyolites (1 loc. 3 spec.) of Upper Badenian age about 50°CCW rotation, the sediments of Lower-Middle Sarmatian age (1 loc. 6 spec.) gave CCW rotation of about 20°and the youngest post-Sarmatian rhyolite (1 loc. 9 spec.) did not yield any rotation. The rotation was preceded by left lateral penetration of the Tissia units into the West- and East-Carpathian boundary zone.
