Abstract

Here two commercially-acquired seismic reflection profiles are used to establish the structure and stratigraphic relationships between the frontal part of the orogenic belt, the foredeep and foreland regions in the offshore continuation of the Apennine system in the northern Ionian sea. Given the proximity of this study area, the tectono-stratigraphic relationships imaged on these seismic lines are likely to provide good analogues for Neogene basins and depositional systems for much of the Apennines onshore. Syntectonic basins are narrow, long-range stratigraphic continuity is likely to be the exception rather than the rule. This challenges some of the assumptions behind existing tectonic models for the Apennines and similar orogens. - (NF)
