AbstractThe Middle Valley of the Tiber River, Italy (MVT), corresponds to a NNW-SSE trending extensional basin that has developed since the middle Pliocene along the western flank of the central Apennines. Stratigraphical, sedimentological, palaeontological and Sr isotope analyses have been conducted to detail the stratigraphy of the MVT and to reconstruct the history of Pliocene-Quaternary basin filling. Most of the basin-fill is composed of fluvial and deltaic deposits that are chronologically constratined by biostratigraphical data and Sr isotopes from marine deposits, and through relationships with volcanic and volcaniclastic units with K-Ar and Ar-Ar radiometric ages.
