Abstract

Monte Sacro Conglomerates are well exposed on the southern slopes of the Sacro Mountains in eastern Cilento, southern Italy. These deposits overlie the Cilento Group (Langhian-Lower Tortonian) so they are likely younger than the Early Tortonian. The formation extends from south to north for 8 km (5 mi) and the outcrop covers an area of about 15 km2 (5 mi2). Deposition occurred in a small, structurally confined basin at the base of a north-dipping slope.
