Title: Foreland tectonics in the southern Adriatic Sea
Title of journal: Mem. Soc. Geol. It.
Series/Report no.: /48(1994)
Issue Date: 1994
Keywords: southern Adriatic Sea
foreland tectonics
Abstract: Two major deformation belts occur in the portion of the Adriatic Sea offshore the Gargano Promontory. The NE-SW - trending Tremiti Deformation Belt, located north of the Gargano Promontory, originated during the Plio- Quaternary, while the E-W-trending South Gargano Deformation Belt, located south of the Gargano Promontory, formed in a time span from Eocene to Early Pliocene. These deformation belts may have originated by tectonic inversion of Mesozoic extensional faults. This inversion tectonics, of Tertiary age, can be related to the evolution of the fold-and thrust belts surrounding the Adriatic Sea. The whole of the study area is, at present, seismically active and represents a preferential site of deformation.
