Abstract (in english)
   We used teleseismic recordings of a temporary deployment of seismic stations and of permanent short period station in the western Eger Rift system to study the lithosphere with the help of Receiver Functions. The crust-mantle boundary (Moho) is observed at almost all stations by strong P-to-S converted phases. The Moho is basically flat between about 26-30 km depth in the entire region. At one station in the Eger Rift (BOH-1, Loket castle) no Moho is observed. We interpret this the existence of a broad gradient zone there, instead of a sharp discontinuity. This observation, however, needs to be confirmed by more data
