The Mesozoic and Cenozoic motion of Adria (central Mediterranean): a review of constraints and limitations

Rosenbaum, Gideon; Lister, Gordon; Duboz, C


This paper presents kinematic analysis on the motion of Adria, which is the continental mass that bridges Africa and Europe in the central Mediterranean. Palaeomagnetic data show a general coherence between the motion of Adria and Africa since the Late Paleozoic. This mutual motion, for the period from 120 Ma and the present, is verified by comparing inferred palaeolatitudes from relatively stable parts of Adria (Apulia, Gargano, Istria, and the Southern Alps) and the Hyblean Plateau, with...[Show more]
