Abstract

Time-scanning of the stratigraphic events has allowed to reconstruct: the different stages of the eastward shift of the chain-foredeep-foreland system; the deformation chronology; the recent effects of the interactions between the regional uplift and extensional tectonics in the chain and the progressive eastward tilting of the Periadriatic domain. The maximum uplift of the mantle doming was recorded at the beginning of the Upper Messinian. The remarkable uplift of several asthenospheric domes, located in the Mediterranean area, favoured the closing of the sea-ways, connecting the Atlantic with Perimediterranean basins. Consequently the salinity crisis developed, with a relative diachrony. During the Middle Pliocene-Quaternary, the intense thinning of the Tyrrhenian crust induced the collapse of the axial dome and subsidence of the riftbelt. - (NF)
