3D MODELLING AND STRUCTURAL INVESTIGATION OF THE CENTRAL VOLCANICS IN SLOVAKIA USING MAGNETIC DATA
The Central volcanics, located in central part of Slovakia, is characterized by intense andesitic volcanic activity that resulted in the formation of stratavolcanoes and dome complexes of Middle and Late Miocene age. The basement area has been affected tectonically resulting in the formation of horst and graben structures. The Central Slovakian Volcanic Field (CSVF) exhibits a very complex magnetic anomaly. A 3-km upward continued magnetic map indicates a deep-seated source for this magmatism. The pseudogravity transformation of the upward continued anomaly has also been constructed. This anomaly was modelled by a 3D-method. The anomalous body lies between the depths of 4.4 to 8.5 km beneath the surface of the CSVF. Volcanic structures and some lineaments are presented on the maxima of the horizontal gradient of the pseudogravity anomaly map. They are well correlated with the structural map of CSVF.
