Background:

The Persani Mountains, an area that includes Pliocene-to-Pleistocene alkali basalts, are located south of the Calimani-Harghita Mountains in east-central Romania (Poka 1988). Bleheau et al. (1973) and Boccaletti et al. (1973) had also noted Pleistocene basalts in the area. Panaiotu et al. (2004) identified a number of volcanic features across a 22 x 8 km zone, finding that there were pulses of activity during 1.5-1.2 and 0.67-0.52 Ma.
