Reconstruction of the tectonic evolution of the western Mediterranean since the Oligocene

Abstract: We present a tectonic synthesis and an animation of the tectonics of the western Mediterranean since the Oligocene. This work is based on data derived from different geological datasets,

Strike-slip systems as the main tectonic features in the Plio-Quaternary kinematics of the Calabrian Arc

The oblique and diachronous collision of the Apennine-Maghrebian Chain with the Apulian (in the north-east) and Pelagian (in the south) continental forelands, has determined the characteristic

Basic Role of Extrusion Processes in the Late Cenozoic Evolution of the Western and Central Mediterranean Belts

Tectonic activity in the Mediterranean area (involving migrations of old orogenic belts, formation of basins and building of orogenic systems) has been determined by the convergence of the confining

Geomorphic expression of active tectonics in a rapidly-deforming forearc, Sila massif, Calabria, southern Italy

We examine the tectonic geomorphology of La Sila, Calabria, southern Italy, a high-standing (1500 m) plateau surrounded by crustal extension, with map, DEM, and field data. These data are used to

Structural style and tectono-stratigraphic evolution of the Neogene–Quaternary Siderno Basin, southern Calabrian Arc, Italy

The Neogene–Quaternary Siderno Basin is located in the southern Calabrian Arc, along an E–W transect including the Ionian side and part of the Tyrrhenian margin. The orogenic belt was generated by
