Seismic profiling and data processing have been used to study the tectonic features of the Neogene sedimentary complex and the basement structure of the Pannonian basin. It seems that a late Cretaceous collision of Tethyan continental margins, together with lateral movements, led to compression and nappe formation. Later tectonics obscured earlier structures. Extensional normal faults and related transcurrent faults occurred in the Neogene and locally into the Pliocene. Compressional structures also exist, and are probably related to some transcurrent faults.-R.E.S.
