Temi di ricerca

RESEARCH LINES

Main researches include the sedimentary geology, the physical stratigraphy, the palaeoclimatology and the palaeoceanography of the Neogene deposits of the peri-Mediterranean area

A particular focus is dedicated to the Messinian salinity crisis, one of the most amazing geological issues. The complexity of this scientific problem has been faced through multidisciplinary studies comprising:

• Integrated Stratigraphy: physical-, cyclo-, bio-, magneto-, sequence-, chrono- stratigraphic revision of the Messinian salinity crisis stratigraphic framework in the Mediterranean area

Sedimentology of the evaporites and hybrid deposits: facies analysis of primary and clastics evaporites (sulfates, carbonates and halite) and mixed evaporitic-terrigenous and/or gypsiferous-carbonate deposits

High-frequency cyclicity on evaporites: study of the short-term modulation of evaporite deposits

Shallow clastics sedimentology: facies analysis on shelf and fluvio-deltaic siliciclastic deposits

Turbitites: facies analyses and basin analysis on the Marnoso-arenacea (Miocene, Northern Apennines) and Laga (Messinian, Central Apennines) turbiditic systems

Mass Transport deposits: focus on the evaporites-bearing chaotic deposits

• Geomicrobiology of the evaporites: relationships between evaporites and microbial communities

Isotope geochemistry: 13C, 18O, 34S, 87Sr/86Sr, isotopes of evaporites and associated deposits

Paleomagnetism: magnetic properties of sediments for integrated stratigraphy

Mars sulphate: providing Earth analogs for interpretation of evaporites on Mars
