Abstract

Summarizes the main results of the electromagnetic induction studies carried out in the Pannonian Basin and Carpathians during the last 30 years. The following conducting formations are discussed in detail: 1) Crustal conductors in the crystalline basement of the sedimentary basin mainly due to graphitic schist blocks clearly connected to the fracture tectonics of the area; 2) Conducting layer in the lower crust probably due to free fluid delivered by the dehydration process at temperature of 300-400°C during metamorphism; 3) Conducting asthenosphere due to partial melting at the bottom of the lithosphere; and 4) Conductivity increases due to olivine-spinel phase transition. -from English summary
