Abstract

Middle and Late Miocene extension of the Pannonian basin was characterized by a diffuse system of normal faults bounded by and connected to other areas of extension or compression by strike- slip faults. Two basically different tectonic settings of compressional deformations are recognized in the surrounding mountains. One is associated with convergent margins of rigid plates, and the other one is related to the overriding front of extensional terrains. What we learnt in this region can be applied to understand the rest of the Alpine-Mediterranean realm, where the recent kinematics and stress field is an inherited feature from the Neogene. -from Author
