Abstract

Space-time distribution and petrogenetic affinity of the Cainozoic calcalkaline orogenic magmatism from the western Mediterranean (from Provence to Campania) has been reassessed, on the basis of new petrochemical and Sr-Nd isotopic data, for a better understanding of the geodynamic evolution of the area. The calcalkaline magmatism may be subdivided in two main cycles: the older, Oligo-Miocene in age (34-20 Ma in Province, and 32-13 Ma in Sardinia); and the younger, Pliocene-Quaternary in age (Eolian area <2 Ma, Campania ca. 2 Ma, and part of the Tyrrhenian oceanic crust 4-1.6 Ma). -from Authors
