Abstract

Recent tectonic models of the Alpine-Carpatho-Pannonian region (ALCAPA) assume a large eastward shift of the Transdanubian Range domain, in the Cenozoic. Palaeomagnetic data demonstrates consistency with models put forward for Jurassic and older ages. From the mid-Jurassic on, the Northern Calcareous Alps did not share the rotations of the Transdanubian Range domain and of the Southern Alps. After individual movements from Neocomian to Miocene, the Transdanubian Range domain must have drifted northward in the mid-Miocene up to the Southern margin of the Northern Calcareous Alps, before starting the "escape'. -from Authors
