Abstract

Earlier paleomagnetic studies suggested that counterclockwise rotating Adriatic microplate could have triggered the youngest rotations in the Hrvatsko Zagorje area (in the Slavonian Mts) and in the Mura-Zala Depression. Since the named areas are located quite far from the Eastern Adriatic coast, we decided to study the Krško and Karlovac Basins, which are situated in-between. From the collected 12 paleomagnetic localities (Badenian through Pontian sediments) ten yielded good paleomagnetic directions as a result of laboratory processing and statistical evaluation. They definitely point to the counterclockwise rotation of the area in post Early Pontian times. The angle of the rotation is about 20° (D = 337°, I = 50°, k=48, α 95 = 10°). Thus, we have found a missing tectonic link from the Hrvatsko Zagorje, Slavonian Mts and the Mura-Zala Basins to the Adriatic microplate and collected further paleomagnetic evidence for end of Miocene or even younger important tectonic movements in the South Pannonian Basin.
