Investigations of Lake Balaton by the Geological Institute of Hungary started in 1981. Between 1987 and 1989 within the framework of Cuban–Hungarian cooperation a total of 373 km boomer seismic section was registered covering the entire lake in a quasi uniform network. As a result of the profiles’ evaluation a picture was drown up about the spatial distribution of lacustrine sediments, the mud structure as well as the variable morphology and geological setting, till 30 m depth from the lake bottom. During 2003 and 2004, in the cooperation of Geophysical and Geological Institutes the original thermo-paper records were digitally archived, re-evaluated and the recent records were integrated as well. The re-evaluation gave the opportunity for a more detailed spatial determination of the geological structure of the bed (layers, faults). This gave an opportunity to plan the research of Pleistocene sediments, deposited before the lake formation.
