Abstract (in english)
   Late Alpine (Sarmatian-Quaternary) movements that gave the final shape to the West Carpathian part of the Alpine mountain range were studied in detail with the aim of compiling the neotectonic map and late a seismotectonic map. The neotectonic map of the West Carpathians, showing the Late Alpine movements in the period Sarmatian-Quaternary, was compiled according to the ESC work group instructions based on the multidisciplinary approach. Besides the traditionally used geological and geomorphological data, emphasis was laid on geodetic, seismological and mainly geophysical data. All available geo-data (geological, geodetic, geophysical, geomorphological) have been verified and unfied on the basis of Remote Sensing.
   A model of the West Carpathian neotectonic blocks and a model of recent lithosphere are presented and the principal problems of the tectogenesis in the West Carpathians are defined: the different and ambiguous interpretations of the structure, the different criteria for modelling the tectonogenesis, the relations between Late Alpine active faults, and relations between the Late Alpine faults and older tectonic systems, and especially the possibility of determining the position of such a problematic unit, as the Penninicum is on the basis of geophysical data
