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
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
Statistical analysis of Neogene sediment thickness deposited during the first transtensional and first transpressional evolutionary stages in the Bjelovar Sub-basin, Northern Croatia
Abstract The Bjelovar Sub-basin is situated in Northern Croatia and constitutes the southwestern branch of the Drava Basin. The Neogene-Quaternary sedimentary section can be subdivided into three

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
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
The Pannonian Basin : a study in basin evolution
The Pannonian basin system is an integrap part of the Alpine mountain belts of east-central Europe. It is completely encircled by the Carpathian Mountains to the north and east, the Dinaric Alps to
Lithospheric structure of the Pannonian basin derived from seismic, gravity and geothermal data
Abstract The structure of the Pannonian basin is the result of distinct modes of Mid-Late Miocene extension exerting a profound effect on the lithospheric configuration, which continues even today.
