Characteristic for the border of the Alps near Graz (Styria) are some basins draining into the Mur and probably having emerged from Middle Miocene poljes. One of them is the Basin of Thal. Its surrounding area exhibits an old land surface with relics of karst cones, dolines, and Pannonian spread of gravel. There is evidence that this highest planation and two lower levels date back to a Prepannonian period and were exhumed again from the Pannonian cover. More recent and also expressed in the late Tertiary foreland are an upper Pliocene and an earliest Pleistocene level. This one and the higher levels represent relics of dissected wide pediments. Below the earliest Pleistocene level there are four Pleistocene river terraces. The relevant erosion of the Mur effected strong back cutting of small tributary brooks and stream captures. All phenomena may be traced beyond the region in question.
