Abstract

A geologic survey, integrated with sedimentalogic observations and macrofacies analysis, has been carried out for the Jurassic deposits outcropping in the Mt. Catria - Mt. Acuto area. The study area is located within the northern Umbria-Marche Apennines and is characterized by the presence of Jurassic different type successions that reflect depositional environment variability. The aim of this paper is to reconstruct the Jurassic paleographic structural setting and the paleotectonic evolution of the area. The data obtained allowed for the identification of two isolated, uplifted blocks of the carbonate platform (Corno di Catria and Mt. Acuto), reduced in size, bounded by escarpments of tectonic origin and separated by a narrow Jurassic basinal area (Mt. Catria). - (NF)
