... promote slip along misoriented fault planes. This paper describes the Tellaro detachment, a mid–late Miocene low-angle normal fault that was responsible for ∼500 m of tectonic vertical thinning in the carbonate-dominated Triassic to Lower Miocene succession of the Northern Apennines, Italy. By integrating...

... information about the block rotation pattern, possibly associated with the Scicli-Ragusa strike-slip fault zone. Our results complement pre-existing data and firmly indicate that: 1) the Hyblean Plateau did not rotate with respect to Africa, even during the Pliocene-Pleistocene rifting of the Strait of Sicily...

Well-known Plio-Pleistocene, high-angle, extensional faults are widespread in southern Tyrrhenian and northern coastal areas of Sicily [ Agate et al. , 1993 ; Pepe et al. , 2003 ], caused by back-arc...

... by Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche 1999. The Malta Archipelago (the islands of Malta and Gozo) is located about 100 km south of Sicily and belongs to a graben system that was formed by two groups of faults: one with NW-SE orien-tation and the other with ENE-WSW orientation. This graben lies within...

The retrograde collapse of the Oligo-Miocene shelf can also be observed along the whole of the Sirt Basin landward margin, particularly in the western Gulf of Sirt, where steep fault scarps are present. Unlike offshore Benghazi, however, the resulting MTC...
