Abstract

There is an approximately round shaped high amplitude telluric conductivity anomaly at Magyarmecske, in South-West Hungary. Attempts were made to explain it by a highly conductive coal bearing Carboniferous sequence. The authors reinvestigated all available geophysical data measured in the area before and based on those they came to the conclusion, that the conductivity anomaly might indicate a buried impact crater of a big meteorite. The impact happened probably before the Carboniferous and created a complex impact crater with central uplift and with a crater diameter of approximately 6 km. Today the impact structure is covered by an about 1100 m thick sedimentary sequence.
