On late Miocene-early Pliocene desert climate in the Carpathian Basin

Geomorphology and changing environments in Central Europe

BREMER, H.

Description :
Until recently only geomorphological features and mammal fossils had been known as evidence to the long-debated dry-warm semidesert or hot desert climate in the Carpathian basin following the filling up of the Pannonian Lake. A comparison of samples with desert varnish collected NE of Budapest and near the oasis of Hassi Zegdou in Algeria support the desert theory. Desert crusts are dated with the help of bio- and lithostratigraphical and paleomagnetic dating of red clays.
