Abstract

Modern beach deposits and late Pleistocene marine terraces of the Palinuro area (province of Salerno) were investigated in the field and the analysis of selected sand samples. The ancient deposits, today indiscriminately attributed to the late Pleistocene, have been divided into two distinct sedimentary cycles. The first is a beach-dune cycle that was originated in MIS 5e. The second is a coastal-dune cycle of indeterminate age (Post MIS 5e); the aeolian dunes exposed on top of the promontory of Palinuro are part of the second cycle.
