Abstract

The Central portion of the Periadriatic Basin is a N-S oriented foreland basin system associated to the Central Apennine Outer Orogenic Wedge. This system stretches along the Marche and Abruzzi regions and is an excellent example of an evolving mountain chain and associated deep-marine to fluvial-alluvial foredeep and wedge-top basins system. This 3 and a half-day trip has been designed to give an overview of the stratigraphic architecture and evolutionary steps of the basin by integrating surface and subsurface datasets. It affords a fine west to east transect through the Messinian-Pleistocene basin fill in Abruzzo and Marche, where outcrops allow a close examination of sedimentary facies and architecture of depositional systems. The basin fill succession includes turbidites, coarse-grained submarine canyon fills and shallow-water depositional settings. The analysis of facies architecture and discontinuity surfaces will allow the attendees to understand the relative role of climate, sediment supply, and thrust front propagation inside the foreland basins system as several factors controlling the stratigraphic record.
