Abstract

The study of morphological evidence for paleo sea-levels observed along the southern Lazio coastline NW of Gaeta showed the occurence of tectonic movements in the time interval between Marine Isotope Stages (MIS) 11 and 3. On the basis of the heights, location and age of marine terraces and wave cut notches, both above and below current sea levels, examined in the various contiguous coastal zones, some consideration were made regarding the rates of differential rises and falls occuring at structural discontinuities in the past 400,000 years, especially between 150,000 years BP and the present-day. - (NF)
