Description :
The crystalline complex of the Sopron Mts. at the eastern end of the Austroalpine nappe system and on the western rim of the Pannonian Basin is a key area to investigate the relationship of orogenic and extensional-rift structures that led to the formation of the Pannonian Basin. The AA. focused primarily on the brittle and ductile deformations in 3 selected gneiss outcrops (Nádormagalast, Harka Hill, Kö Hill). Beyond providing evidence for the possible rotation and tilting of the different blocks of the mountains based on the comparison of the structural elements, they paid special attention to the brittle-plastic deformations that may indicate the (re-)activation of Cretaceous thrust faults.
