Example text

The Cilento nappes are characterized 27 by grey "chaotic matrix" and floating teleallochthonous and parautochthonaus turbidite blocks. The Lagonegro nappes are composed of dark epimetamorphic more or less "chaotic matrix" and enclosed extremely large teleallochthonaus pelagic Mesozoic (Carnic to early Cretaceous) blocks. The north Calabria nappes have a mixed "chaotic matrix" with enclosed allochthonaus blocks of the ophiolite, Lagonegro, and other terrains of middle Jurassie to early Eocene age.

We note that the lateral extent of the southern Tyrrhenian HVA increases with depth from 150 km (layer 2) to about 400 km (layer 5). At greater depth, the Northern Apennines still exhibit a different velocity structure from the Southern Apennines; the former being characterized by a strong HVA. At 150-230 and 230-325 km depth, the two main HVAs (Northern 38 Alessandro Amato and Giovanni Battista Cimini Apennines and southern Tyrrhenian Sea) are separated and clearly evident (Fig. 3C, D, contours of ~vp = +2%), although a weak, discontinuous HVA (around +1 to +2%) is visible below Southern Apennines at 85-150 km, 150-230 km, and 230-325 km (Fig.

6) The outer carbonate thrust system, made up of Mesozoic carbonate platform and early Miocene to early Pliocene terrigenous foreland deposits, thrust mainly during early Pliocene. (7) Block-faulted foreland (Hyblean-Ragusa plateau and Pelagian block) strictly parts of the N Africa platform. Here too, different structural interpretations are available (Ch. 16), mainly concerned with dating of the first tangential deformation and repeated out-of-sequence reactivations. 30 Gian Battista Vai STRATIGRAPHY The basic Stratigraphie frame and a possible palaeogeographic scenario are summarized here by means of correlation charts in which the main lithostratigraphic (and other) units (including all of those referred to in this volume) are shown.
