Abstract

The results of deep seismic reflection exploration in the central mediterranean region (CROP Project) provide basic insights into the driving mechanism of the Tyrrenian-Apenines arc-trench-back system. In particular, such information clearly indicates that during the formation of the Tyrrenian back arc basin the migrating orogenic wedges (Arc) and the Adriatic domain underwent strong shortening, that is not consistent with the implications of the driving mechanism which is generally invoked to explain the formation of the Tyrrenian basin, that is the gravitational sinking of subdicted lithsphere. - (NF)
