Worldwide data on degassing suggests a tectonic control over such processes. The research done on greenhouse gases revealed that CO2 mobilized by tectonically and seismically active areas makes a significant contribution to the annual budget of natural CO2. We investigate CO2 soil flux on major active fault system, such as the Trotuș Fault and neighbouring areas, for better understanding of tectonic degassing in the Eastern Carpathians. Our results so far show that a west-eastward CO2 flux anomaly, where the highest flux of CO2 (1120 g/m2/day) was orders of the magnitudes higher than the environmental background flux (8,8 g/m2/day) of the investigated area.
