Abstract

It is widely recognized that drastic changes of deformation style have occurred in the southern Apennines around the late Pliocene and the middle Pliocene, passing from a dominant compressional tectonics, associated with the Pliocene accretion of the belt, into a much more complex setting, characterised by sinistral strike-slip, NE-SW extension, acceleration of uplift in the axial and other sectors of the belt and subsidence in some zone of the Tyrrhenian coastal margin. The AA. argue that such tectonic reorganisations can be explained as effects of major changes in the kinematics of the Adriatic plate, induced by first order tectonic events in the surrounding regions. - (NF)
