Untersuchungen zur Chronostratigraphie mariner Terrassen in Mittelitalien—230Th/234U- und ESR-Datierungen an fossilen Mollusken

Ulrich Radtke, Gerd J. Hennig & Augusto Mangini
The subject of this study was the cronostratigraphical coordination of the marine terraces' genesis with the Quaternary stratigraphy. The marine terraces of this region developed by the interference of a strong tectonic uplift and glacio-eustatic fluctuations of the sea-level. The terraces were sampled between the rivers Mignone and Marta. Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) and 230Th/234U dating of fossil sea shells demonstrated the genesis of two Euthyrrenian terraces. Two different shorelines can be identified; the first...
