Oligocene-to-early Miocene depositional and structural evolution of the Calabria-Peloritani Arc southern terrane (Italy) and geodynamic correlations with the Spain Betics and Morocco Rif


The Calabria-Peloritani Arc southern terrane (CPAST) is a stack of crystalline basement nappes, some of them provided with a widely outcropping Alpine sedimentary cover, sealed by clastics of the Stilo-Capo d'Orlando Formation (SCOF). A comparison between the sedimentary cycles characterising the CPAST during the Oligocene-Early Miocene and those almost coeval of the Betic-Rifian internal units highlights their quite similar evolution. Thus it is reliable that both the orogenic belts originated from continuous paleogeographic realms. It confirms that the present western Mediterranean Chains were originally segments of a continuous orogenic belt disrupted by the opening of the Balearic and Tyrrhenian basins
