The analysis of tidal marine notches on the northern Adriatic coast allowed to identify useful elements for the understanding of coastal tectonic mechanisms. The depth of the submerged marine tidal notches (ranging between -0.5 m and -1.7 from Istria to Trieste) and the lack of a Present day tidal notch on the Trieste coast, together with other stratigraphic and structural observations are elements that lead to the hypothesis that a SE-NW subsidence tilting is in progress in the whole study area.

THE ENIGMA OF SUBMERGED MARINE NOTCHES IN NORTHERN ADRIATIC SEA

Abstract

The analysis of tidal marine notches on the northern Adriatic coast allowed to identify useful elements for the understanding of coastal tectonic mechanisms. The depth of the submerged marine tidal notches (ranging between -0.5 m and -1.7 from Istria to Trieste) and the lack of a Present day tidal notch on the Trieste coast, together with other stratigraphic and structural observations are elements that lead to the hypothesis that a SE-NW subsidence tilting is in progress in the whole study area.
