CROP Project, Volume 1: Deep Seismic Exploration of the by I.R. Finetti

By I.R. Finetti

This e-book provides and discusses new facts starting from Alps to Africa, bought via the CROP venture (transcrustal seismic exploration of the Mediterranean and Italy). New lithospheric imagings of suitable value for realizing disputed themes are supplied. Alps, Apennines, Calabrian Arc, Sicilian Apennine, Maghrebian Chain, Corso-Sardinian Block, paleo-basins (Ionian, Alpine Tethys), neo-basins (Balearic and Tyrrhenian) are innovatively reconstructed.

* offers new info from the Alps to Africa
* provides interpretation of the CROP seismic community data
* bargains a stepwise bring up in info with new information for additional experiences

Section 11b starts in the Sicily Channel, north of Pantelleria, crosses Sicily from Sciacca on the south coast to Termini Imerese on the Tyrrhenian coast, ending in the Aeolian archipelago (island of Salina). , 1987). The shots were located offshore (Sicily Channel, South Tyrrhenian, Gulf of Taranto and Adriatic Sea) and recorded by land-based stations at Pantelleria, Sicily, the Aeolian islands, Calabria and the Salentina peninsula. Section 11a shows a crustal thickness of about 18 km under the Aeolian islands.

The field work and the interpretation are to be credited to the joint effort of an international group (mainly German, Italian, Swiss and French), organised under the scientific sponsorship of the European Seismological Commission.

In Figure 23 is exhibited an MS-line close-up (MS-17) which images the upper Sirte margin reflecting sequence. 7. Southern Adriatic Basin For the most part, the Adriatic is a Meso-Cenozoic basin, covered by shallow water, which continues on land in the Po Valley. It represents the foreland of the Apennine orogenic system to the west, of the Dinaric system to the east, and of the Southern Alps to the north. Only the Southern Adriatic is covered by deep water (up to about 1 km). Therefore only this part of the Adriatic was explored by the MS seismic project, whose fixed target was the Mediterranean water over 200 m deep.
