Summary

Calabria forms part of the African deformed margin; the Ionian slope of the Calabrian arc is interpreted as an active plate margin, characterized by strong neotectonics, 1000m uplift during 1 Ma, and strong seismic activity. So we are dealing, for the purpose of this study, with a well-definable plate tectonic setting.
