Abstract

The first results of paleomagnetic directions from the Neogene sedimentary rocks of the western part of the Westem Carpathians and the northern part of Pannonian Basin showed counter-clockwise rotation of the investigated areas. Further studies were extended to the Central Carpathian Paleogene basins (Levočské vrchy Mts. on the eastern and the northern part of the Bánovská kotlina Basin in Western Slovakia), the Šambrón-Kamenica Zone and the Lower Miocene sediments from the Northern Hungary. All the samples are sediments, mostly turbidites, with the exception of the fresh water limestones from the Northern Hungary. The results from the suitable localities (Lábatlan - Northern Hungary, Omastiná - Western Slovakia and Demjata - Eastern Slovakia) showed counter-clockwise rotation between 65-105°.
