Abstract

The Bakony Mountains in the Pannonian basin represent a continuation of the Alps towards the inner W Carpathians. Analysis and interpretation of the marine sedimentary rocks from Triassic to Middle Cretaceous show that early subsidence was possibly due to lithospheric extension while later subsidence was controlled primarily by the thermal decay of the heat anomaly caused by the elevated asthenosphere. The Mesozoic history of the area can be explained in terms of passive continental margin evolution and it is suggested that the Transdanubian Central Range could be a nappe superimposed on Penninic or lower Austroalpine units. -R.E.S.
