Abstract

The Dinarides, the Western Carpathians and the Eastern Alps, situated at the borders of the Pannonian basin, are of a very similar origin. Therefore, a comparison of the results obtained in the investigation of relationships between geoid undulations, gravity anomalies, the surface topography and the Mohorovičić discontinuity shape, was effected. It came out that these three regions have mainly same basic characteristics, but also own specific features.
