Abstract

The AA. consider (without reaching any conclusions) four major open questions that bear on the original geologic relationships between Sardinia and Calabria, and that are closely interconnected : (1) Was Calabria a single terrane during post-Hercynian time (Mesozoic and Cenozoic), or is it a composite terrane formed by Cenozoic collision of two subterranes, northern and southern? (2) What has the history of subduction under Calabria been? (3) Is there a recognizable match between the Hercynian and Mesozoic geology of Sardinia and of Calabria? (4) How was Calabria extended during its rifting away from Sardinia? - (NF)
