Abstract

This report focuses on one of the most debated features of the Maiella geology, i.e. the paleoescarpement a ca. 1000 m high erosional surface abruptly separating Cretaceous slope from platform facies. The attempt has been to address some crucial questions such as the reconstruction of a morphologic model applicable to the entire exhumed portion of the Maiella escarpment, and to investigate the relationships between the paleoescarpment morphology and mechanisms responsible for the platform margin erosion. - (NF)
