Abstract

The Crotone Basin, located on a stack of nappes piled up during the late Paleogene-Neogene, formed in the late Neogene to Quaternary as a forearc basin of the Ionian arc-trench system. The process of slab rollback caused rapid trench migration, resulting in an extensionaltranstensional regime persisting most of the time in the forearc area. It is concluded that the geologic evolution of the investigated forearc area was characterized by an alternation of long-lived stages of extension-transtension expressed by prolonged subsidence preceded by uplift pulses, and short-lived episodes of contraction-transpression. Major drowning episodes in the forearc area are thought to be coeval to the main phases of spreading in the Tyrrhenian basin. - (NF)
