Abstract

The Gulf of Taranto in southern Italy provides an excellent case where it is possible to document the importance of normal faults in displacing terraced deposits. The recognition of recent extensional faulting and tectonic instability in the study area has a relevant implication for a matter of social security. In November 2003, the area of Scanzano Jonico was proposed as a site for nuclear waste deposit. The discovery of recent extensional faults undermine the generalised assumption of a long-lasting tectonic quiescence in the taranto Gulf, and suggest that the entire investigated area may not be suitable for nuclear waste storage. - (NF)
