Abstract

In the Hungarian part of the Tisia Block, four occurrences of rhizolith-bearing pedogenic calcrete have been published, three of which are located in southern Transdanubia. Nodular calcrete with beta fabrics was documented from the lower Permian (Cisuralian) continental Korpád Sandstone Formation where the subaerial exposure section was developed on a strongly altered, volcanic shard-rich siliciclastic substrate. Additionally, two locations with Microcodium-bearing calcrete developed on a lower Jurassic carbonate substrate were published in the last few years. The scope of this study is to briefly summarize pedogenic calcrete records known from the Permian to the Cenozoic of southern Transdanubia (Tisia Block, Hungary), and to highlight their regional paleoenvironmental and paleogeographic importance.
