The geology of Hungary is best described as an orogenic collage, assembled in the Miocene, and subsequently covered by sediments. Inselbergs serve as outcrops, displaying what is below the Miocene to Quaternary cover. Since the ratio of geologists per km2 of hard rock is possibly the highest in Europe next to The Low Countries, regional geology is quite well known (Trunkó, 1996). Correlation between outcrops is best served by thousands of deep boreholes and an extensive network of seismic profiles (results of sixty years of hydrocarbon exploration), making the Pannonian Basin one of the best known great basins of the world.
