The multiphase Tertiary deformation history and basin evolution of the northern part of the Pannonian basin have been studied by means of detailed paleostress, gravity and paleomagnetic data analysis. This part is a unique area of the Intra-Carpathian domain from at least two reasons. First, it has the most complete exposed Tertiary rock sequence and thus provides excellent possibility to study its structural evolution. On the other hand, the complex and quite contrasting deformation history is characterised by a retroarc flexural-type basin formation and continental escape during the Paleogene which was overprinted by the transtensional, back-arc-type extension in the Neogene.
