Thermoanalytical (TA) analysis is not at all a frequently used method for studying travertine. Therefore the application of two TA techniques is presented for characterization of the Buda-Vár-hegy (Castle Hill), Budakalász and Szomód-Les-hegy Quaternary travertine occurrences in this paper. TA data give comparable results with those of oxygen and carbon stable isotope compositions and offer a new way to estimate the temperature of carbonate precipitation.
