Title: Petrochemistry of the Neogene and Quaternary basaltic volcanism in the Carpathian Basin
Year: 1985
Volume: 12
Pages: 5-18.

Abstract: For the first time, petrochemical character based on the major element chemistry of young basalts from the whole of the Carpathian Basin area is considered and discussed at some length. The older Miocene-Pliocene basalts are calc-alkaline in nature, while the younger, Plio-Pleistocene basalts are alkaline. These latter ones cover however a very wide range of composition from the olivine tholeiites to the extremely undersaturated melilite nephelinites. The degrees of partial melting andor differentiation have been estimated.
