The miocenic cliff at the NW edge of the Mesima sedimentary basin (Calabria, Southern Italy)

Pages 143-145


In Calabria (near the town of Vibo Valentia) marine deposits at a cliff toe made up of granulitic gneiss, describe the beginning of a transgression with carbonate sediments (upper Miocene) and, in the mean time, they suggest the geomorphic evolution of a high rocky coast that experiences a strong seismotectonic activity. Landslides and megabreccias characterize the deposit as well as many large sedimentary veins, made up of fossils, that cross cut both the nbasement gneiss and cliff gneiss.
