Permo-Triassic rift-related magmatism in the Dinarides produced an intrusive gabbro-diorite-syenite-granite formation and an extrusive basalt-andesite-dacite formation with abundant pyroclastic rocks. They are spatially and genetically related to Late Permian to Norian rift-related sedimentary formations of the Adriatic-Dinaridic carbonate platform (ADCP). The volcanic and pyroclastic rocks are interlayered with fossiliferous sediments that range between the Late Permian and Middle Norian; the plutonic rocks, which are intrusive into Late Paleozoic and Scythian-Anisian sediments, have radiometric ages ranging between 262 and 212 Ma. Based on major and trace element contents, rocks of the Permo-Triassic magmatic association originated by fractional crystallization from primitive alkalic basalt to olivine tholeiite melts. Volcanic rocks were affected by strong ocean-hydrothermal metamorphism. Initial 87Sr/86Sr ratio of 0.703 and d18O of 5.6‰ of the most primitive rocks indicate an upper mantle origin. Most initial 87Sr/86Sr ratios range between 0.704-0.707, indicating a slight degree of crustal contamination. The Permo-Triassic igneous rocks of the Dinarides represent a specific and autonomous paleorift-related association, which cannot be correlated with the magmatic associations either from recent oceans or with alkali rocks from the Cenozoic African rift and Permian Oslo graben.

The present issue is devoted to the memory of Professor Jakob Pamić, who for a long time, until his death, was a very active member of the Advisory Board of the Acta Geologica Hungarica and provided great efforts toward a better understanding of the geology of the Pannonian Basin and the surrounding mountain ranges.
