Inverted structures in western Sicily

Inverted structures in western Sicily

Bollettino della Societa Geologica Italiana 121(1): 11-17

Examples of Late Miocene fault reactivation, observed in Western Sicily, are illustrated. Reactivation consists of positively inverted Mesozoic and Neogene high-angle, in places listric, extensional faults. Mesozoic structures may be identified as the weakness zones of the hinge zone between carbonate platforms and pelagic basins, whereas the Neogene extension was mostly localised in the Sicilian foreland. These normal faults, randomly oriented with respect to the subsequent tectonic transport direction, have produced different geometries in the footwall and hangingwall of the normal faults, and also lead to different kinematics along the fault plane.
