The thick upper Pliocene to lower Pleistocene succession of hemipelagic mudstones of the Marche Apennines foredeep (central Italy) is punctuated by several mostly coarse-grained, cyclic turbidite systems. Integrated and detailed analyses of sedimentary facies, physical stratigraphy, biostratigraphy, and magnetostratigraphy have provided a high-resolution sequence stratigraphic framework for sediments of two of these coarse-grained systems, each resulting from the stack of five deepwater, high-frequency depositional sequences backfilling the mouth and lower reaches of a long-lived submarine canyon. The tight chronostratigraphic control available on these two turbidite systems and encasing hemipelagic sediments allows a precise correlation of the component high-frequency sequences...
