Using a large magnetotelluric dataset measured along a 60-km profile with a point distance of 750 m in the Great Hungarian Plain the existence of a conducting layer in the lower crust (at about 18 km) due to free fluid has been proved to be in good agreement with the high heat flow of the Pannonian Basin. By means of the same magnetotelluric dataset, the relatively shallow depth of the conducting asthenosphere has also been more exactly determined than previously.
