Abstract

Based on a revision of stratigraphic and structural data relative to the Balearic basin, the Corsica-Sardinia massif, the Northern Tyrrhenian Sea and the Northern Apennines the following new hypothesis is proposed for the area located between the Sardinian-Corsican-Provencal and Northern Apennines regions: (a) convergence with subduction of oceanic crust under the Iberian plate beginning in the Late Cretaceous; (b) continental collision in the Oligocene-Aquitanian, with development of the Northern Apennines belt and transpressive deformation in a hinterland that consisted of the Corsica-Sardinia massif (still attached to the Iberian plate); (c) in the Burdigalian the tectonic regime changed from compressive to extensional. During this period the Corsica-Sardinia massif migrated contemporaneously with opening of the Balearic basin, the Sardinian rift, and the Northern Tyrrhenian sea; (d) from the Burdigalian to the present, there was contemporaneous compression at the front and extension at the back of the Northern Apennines chain; both these features progressively migrated toward the east. The coeval extension and compression is attributed to Lithospheric delamination toward the external part of the belt.
