This  two-day long field trip focuses on a portion of the southern Italy 'foreland system', which preserves  Plio-Pleistocene mixed deposits accumulated in shallow-marine environments. These depocenters reproduced types of mixing and degrees of segregation indicative of a variety of geological processes. Outcrop examples are exposed in the inner wedge-top depozone, where siliciclastic-bioclastic sediments accumulated in marginal-marine settings, and along the outer foreland-edge, where calciclastic-bioclastic coastal bodies prograded from rocky gently-sloping flanks of a tectonic high, leading to seismic-scale back-stepping clinoforms.
