Title: Aspects of Some Evaporitic Structures in Western Mediterranean Sea

Author(s): G. Mascle (2), J. Mascle (3)


The stratigraphy and outcrops of the gypsum series in Sicily suggest that the interaction of tectonic and subaerial erosion may explain the genesis of "perched" structures. A comparison between these Sicilian evaporitic features and some submarine "diapirs" in the western Mediterranean Sea shows possible interesting similarities. Both Sicilian and submarine structures may be of the same origin.
