Abstract

Magnetotelluric sounding has detected a correspondence between some seismically active narrow fracture zones at the boundary of the Eastern Alps and an extreme conductivity increase at a depth of about 7km. The shallow depth (30-34km) of a conductivity anomaly detected in the deep crust may result from the increased heat flow in the transitional zone between the Pannonian Basin and the Alps. A close relation between the electric and seismic crustal models seems to exist at depths around 7km. -Authors
