Abstract

The middle to early Late Triassic formations of the Gemer-Bukk units (Northeast Hungary and Southeast Slovakia) bear evidence of the opening of a Red Sea-type, young oceanic basin (Meliaticum) and the shaping of its continental margins. In connection with the rifting, remarkable facies differentiation developed, as reflected by these formations. In the 'northern' margin, the transition from the outer shelf through the slope into the deep basin has been fairly well preserved in the different tectofacial units. The depositional area of the Gemer-Bukk units was originally located near to the northwest end (the remnants of which are now dispersed in Carpatho-Pannonian terrane collage) of the Dinaric-Alpine Neotethys branch. A connection to the extra-Carpathian Palaeotethys (for example, via the Median Dacidic-Serbo-Macedonian continental margin) was improbable.
