From the Miocene onwards, the Alpine and South Alpine domains have been closely coupled within the framework of fault kinematics and geodynamic processes related to the continuing indentation of the Adria plate against Europe. In this study, the post-Oligocene evolution of a wide sector of the North Adriatic indenter border and nearby areas is re-examined in an extensive regional context by means of structural, geochronological and seismotectonic data. The Adria northern edge roughly corresponds to the Periadriatic lineament which is characterized in the central–eastern Alps by an abrupt change of orientation from east-west to NNE–SSW at the North Giudicarie...
