Abstract

The Tisza Mega-unit (Tisia Terrane) forms the basement of the Pannonian Basin south of the Mid-Hungarian Lineament (see Fig. 1 in “Introduction”). In the territory of Hungary the pre-Neogene basement crops out only in two relatively small, isolated areas in South Transdanubia - the Mecsek Mountains and Villány Hills (Figs. 1, 2 in “Introduction”). However, more than three thousand wells, oil and uranium prospecting boreholes provide information on the geologic features of the basement and the younger overburden of the basins. Significant parts of the Tisza Mega-unit extend into Croatian (Slavonian), Serbian (North Vojvodina) and Romanian (West Transylvanian) territories (Szederkényi 1974, 1984; Kovács 1982; Fülöp 1994; Kovács et al. 2000). In Romania and Croatia large mountains and uplands (Apuseni Mts., Papuk Mts., Psunj Mts.) provide an excellent opportunity to study its structural setting and stratigraphy.
