5.1 Regional Geology

The assessment of possible storage sites has been conducted within a 50 km radius of the Turceni PP (the emission source), within the Getic Depression. The Getic Depression represents a sedimentary basin developed at the contact between the South Carpathians and the Moesian Platform (Sandulescu, 1984). The 50-100 km wide basin comprises more than 6 km of Uppermost Cretaceous to Tertiary sediments deposited in a poly phase tectonic regime. This regime is described in greater detail in Appendix C.
