The paper describes the main steps of magnetotelluric (MT) data processing and interpretation in the area of the Transdanubian Conductivity Anomaly (TCA). The regional strike of the TCA was found in a NE-SW direction on the basis of the MT phase maps and from the rose diagram of the extreme resistivity sounding curves. Inverting the MT data along ELGI's NW-SE profiles by different 2D programs, strong longitudinal strike slip zones unknown until now could be determined between the Rába and Balaton Lines, which might be in close connection with earthquake activity of the area.
