Abstract (in english)
   The Cheb Basin (CHB), located in the western part of the Eger Rift (ER) and the western Bohemian Massif, is characterized by earthquake swarms, neotectonic crust movements and emanations of CO2 dominated gases of mantle origin. Deep structure of the region can be characterized as junction of three domains of mantle lithosphere with different olivine fabrics revealed by consistent orientations of seismic anisotropy. The domains represent mantle components of the major tectonic units (micro-plates): Saxothuringian (ST), Teplá-Barrandian (TB) and Moldanubian (MD), which were assembled during the Variscan orogeny.
