Abstract

Paleomagnetic data subdivide the Mesozoic-Cenozoic displacement history of the Transdanubian Central range into three main periods. During the first, the Transdanubian Central Range must have moved in close coordination with Africa; the second period (Paleogene early-mid Miocene) is characterized by displacements independent of both Africa and stable Europe; finally, the Transdanubian Central Range welded to stable Europe. This paper deals with the first two periods, paying special attention to the problem of how paleomagnetic data may constrain "escape models' that envisage the Transdanubian Central Range as moving from the southern neighbourhood of the Northern Calcareous Alps into its present position. -from Author
