The Neogene sedimentary successions of the Drava, Sava and Slavonija–Srijem depressions in the SW part of the Pannonian Basin Systemare built up of three 2nd order megacycles separated by four majorerosional unconformities. The first megacycle contains terrestrial tomarine syn-rift and early post-rift sediments of Early to Mid-Mioceneage. The second is built up of Late Miocene Lake Pannon deposits,while the third contains those sediments which were deposited inthe remnants of Lake Pannon and in…

Composition and provenance of Neogene sedimentary rocks of Dilj gora Mt. (south Pannonian Basin, Croatia)

The petrographic composition and transport direction of medium and coarse-grained clastic material of Dilj gora Mt. which is located in the south Pannonian basin, show that this area experienced

Overview of geologic evolution and hydrocarbon generation of the Pannonian Basin

AbstractThe Pannonian Basin is an intraorogenic extensional region floored by a complex system of Alpine orogenic terranes and oceanic suture zones. Its formation dates back to the beginning of the

Turbidites as indicators of paleotopography, Upper Miocene Lake Pannon, Western Mecsek Mountains (Hungary)

Abstract The floor of Lake Pannon covering the Pannonian Basin in the Late Miocene had considerable relief, including both deep sub-basins, like the Drava Basin, and basement highs, like the Mecsek

Paleogeographic evolution of the Southern Pannonian Basin: 40Ar/39Ar age constraints on the Miocene continental series of Northern Croatia

The Pannonian Basin, originating during the Early Miocene, is a large extensional basin incorporated between Alpine, Carpathian and Dinaride fold-thrust belts. Back-arc extensional tectonics

Comparison between the Middle Miocene and the Upper Miocene source rock formations in the Sava Depression (Pannonian Basin, Croatia)

The Sava Depression lies at the very south-western margin of the Pannonian Basin. There are 20 hydrocarbon fields altogether and 17 are still in production. The organic geochemistry data and their

Revised Middle Miocene datum for initial marine fl ooding of North Croatian Basins ( Pannonian Basin System , Central Paratethys )

The Pannonian Basin System (PBS) originated during the Early Miocene as a result of extensional processes between the Alpine-Carpathian and the Dinaride Orogenic Belts. The Paratethys Sea fl ooded

Early to Middle Miocene facies succession in lacustrine and marine environments on the southwestern margin of the Pannonian basin system (Croatia)

A continuous succession of Ottnangian-Badenian sediments along the southern margin of the Pannonian Basin System indicates transition from lacustrine to marine depositional environments. The

Sedimentary bodies and depositional models for the Miocene oil-producing areas Ladislavci, Beničanci and Obod (Croatia)

Coarse-grained clastic sedimentary rocks, i.e. the collectors found in Miocene formation of the Ladislavci, Benicanci and Obod oil fields are sedimentary and genetically related to Miocene

Tectonostratigraphic model for the North Croatian and North Bosnian sector of the Miocene Pannonian Basin System

ABSTRACT The formation of the North Croatian Basin, which represents the south‐western marginal part of the Pannonian Basin System and the Central Paratethys Bioprovince, began during Ottnangian time

Tertiary tectonic evolution of the Pannonian Basin system and neighbouring orogens: a new synthesis of palaeostress data

Abstract Compilation of a microtectonic observation data base for most of the data measured in the Pannonian Basin and surrounding orogens permits a detailed reconstruction of the Tertiary stress

Role of unconformity-bounded units in the stratigraphy of the continental record: a case study from the Late Miocene of the western Pannonian Basin, Hungary

Abstract We present an up-to-date stratigraphic framework for the Late Miocene (post-rift) non-marine strata of the western Pannonian Basin, based on unconformity-bounded units as they are derived

Petroleum Geology of the Pannonian Basin, Hungary: An Overview: Chapter 23

Source rocks in the Pannonian basin are dominantly lower Miocene to lower Pannonian shales that have matured during rapid Neogene subsidence and burial. Ages of reservoir rocks vary from Paleozoic to
