Abstract

In Sicily, the Africa-Europe convergence is testified by the time-space migration of a complex Chain-Foredeep system. The convergence took place from the Oligocene to the Pleistocene, involving several paleogeographic domains. Recent interpretation of off-shore seismic lines shows that the advance of the frontal part of the chain stopped during the Early Pleistocene ; on the other hand new onshore geological data indicate an accretionary wedge under sub-critical conditions affected by internaldeformation due to the activation of deep transgressive crustal structures. - (NF)
