Abstract

The aim of this paper is to outline the evolution of some parts of the western Tethys as it can be deciphered from the geology of Hungary. During the late Palaeozoic and most of the Mesozoic, lithospheric fragments which build up the basement of Hungary were situated relatively far from each other in different parts of the Tethys. The present-day setting formed by plate-tectonic movements from the Cretaceous to the Miocene including large-scale strike-slip faulting, microplate rotation and over-thrusting. -Authors
