Refining the Mediterranean Messinian gap with high-precision U-Pb zircon geochronology, central and northern Italy
Astronomically tuned cyclic sedimentary successions provide unprecedented insight into the temporal evolution of depositional systems and major geologic events. However, placing astronomicallyExpand

Sea-level and climate forcing of the Sr isotope composition of late Miocene Mediterranean marine basins
Sr isotope records from marginal marine basins track the mixing between seawater and local continental runoff, potentially recording the effects of sea level, tectonic, and climate forcing in marineExpand

The “Brecciated Limestones” of Maiella, Italy: Rheological implications of hydrocarbon-charged fluid migration in the Messinian Mediterranean Basin
Abstract The upper Messinian “Brecciated Limestones” of the Maiella area (Central Italy) reveal clues to the rheological behavior of the sedimentary column during fluid migration processes, as wellExpand

Palaeoenvironments of the Mediterranean Basin at the Messinian hypersaline/hyposaline transition: evidence from natural radioactivity and microfacies of post‐evaporitic successions of the Adriatic
At the end of the Messinian salinity crisis, changes in the palaeoceanography and palaeoclimate induced a transition from hypersaline to hyposaline conditions in the Mediterranean water body.Expand

Stratigraphic architecture of the upper Messinian deposits of the Adana Basin (southern Turkey): implications for the Messinian Salinity Crisis and the Taurus petroleum system
This paper is mainly based on field work carried out on the Messinian deposits of the Adana Basin (southern Turkey), as well as on the interpretation of seismic reflection profiles to understand 3DExpand

Tsunami hazard in the Eastern Mediterranean: geological evidence from the Anatolian coastal area (Silifke, southern Turkey)
Tsunami deposits are used worldwide to provide a record of past offshore earthquakes and submarine landslides, which is essential for tsunami hazard evaluation. This work shows for the first timeExpand

Deep-seated hydrocarbons in the seep “Brecciated Limestones” of the Maiella area (Adriatic foreland basin): Evaporitic sealing and oil re-mobilization effects linked to the drawdown of the Messinian
Abstract The 13C-depleted “Brecciated Limestones” record a hydrocarbon seep event that occurred between 5.56 and 5.532 Ma in the Maiella area. They unconformably overlie the “Primary Lower Gypsum”Expand

Palaeoredox indicators from the organic-rich Messinian early post-evaporitic deposits of the Apennines (Central Italy)
Bottom redox conditions in marine and lacustrine ancient basins are often inferred by the occurrence of peculiar sedimentological structures and microfaunal assemblages. The co-occurrence, in suchExpand

Cyclicity and 87Sr/86Sr stratigraphy of the Primary Lower Gypsum of the Adriatic sub-basin (Italy): insight into oceanic-continental water mixing in the Mediterranean during the early stage of the
During the Messinian stage, the Maiella area was part of the Adriatic foreland domain of the Apennine orogenic system. Westward of the present Maiella Mts (Queglia-Morrone-Alfedena) a W-dipping rampExpand
