Description :
The eruptive history of the Tihany Peninsula (Lake Balaton, Hungary) has been studied in detail to understand the evolution of volcanic and tectonic structures. Tectonic and depositional features indicate a maar-type origin of the Outer Lake. This is the main volcanic structure of peninsula and phreatomagmatic activity probably began here. The lapilli and coarse ashes in the pyroclastites are generally mud-coated, accretionary lapilli are common, and the tuffs are frequently light brownish, suggesting that the surges responsible for the deposits were wet.
