Auteur :
SELLERI, G.

Description :
The Salento area is a narrow peninsula composed of Cretaceous and Neogenic carbonatic rocks constituting the southernmost part of the emerged Apulian foreland. A karstic landscape shaped on Upper Cretaceous - Lower Pleistocene rocks and covered by Middle Pleistocene terrigenous sediments has been recognized. Presently, the Salento Peninsula landscape shows at its inner and western parts wide karstic surfaces, remnants of the middle Pleistocene sedimentary cover, and morphostructural ridges. - (NF)
