Background:

There are a number of locations south of the Apuseni Mountains in west-central Romania with deposits dated in the Quaternary. The Beritia lava dome (IAVCEI 1973) is located in an area of numerous alkali basalt vents of Pliocene-to-Pleistocene age (Bleahu et al. 1973, Poka 1988). Uroiu Hill, 15 km SE of Beritia, was dated by Pecskay (1995) at 1.6 +/- 0.1 Ma.
