Abstract

Geological mapping and structural analysis, coupled with extensive samplings on terrigenous Tertiary covers, enable us to reconstruct the structural setting as well as the tectonic evolution of the northern Sicanian-southern Palermo Mountains range in western Sicily. The analyzed region is a segment of the Apenninic-Maghrebian Orogen characterized by the occurrence of two regional superimposed tectonic edifices; the Apenninic-Maghrebian Chain (AMC) and the Pelagian Sicilian Thrust Belt (PSTB) which constitute the uppermost and lowermost structural level respectively. The different structural associations generally suggest a multiphase tectonic history in which we distinguished three main deformational events. - (NF)
