We propose a new kinematic model for the evolution of the Sicilian-Maghrebian chain from the early Oligocene to Present. In particular, the evolution of the Caltanissetta foredeep basin, active from upper Miocene–Pleistocene is described from a kinematic point of view through a series of plate reconstructions that show the Caltanissetta basin peculiarity with respect to the Maghrebian chain foredeep, and points out that the foredeep evolution can't be explained in a simple collisional complex context.

Abstract

We propose a new kinematic model for the evolution of the Sicilian-Maghrebian chain from the early Oligocene to Present. In particular, the evolution of the Caltanissetta foredeep basin, active from upper Miocene–Pleistocene is described from a kinematic point of view through a series of plate reconstructions that show the Caltanissetta basin peculiarity with respect to the Maghrebian chain foredeep, and points out that the foredeep evolution can't be explained in a simple collisional complex context.
