This manuscript outlines the different sedimentary deposits that characterise the Tavoliere di Puglia plain (the second largest Italian plain). The plain is largely covered by Quaternary terrace deposits that unconformably lie on older deposits, most commonly the argille subappennine unit. The outcropping units have been divided into categories of descending rank: the first subdivision is made on the basis of geological domain; within each domain a subdivision of lower rank is based on age; within each age a further subdivision is based on the nature of the sediments. The main map presents an updated synthesis of the geology and geomorphology of the Tavoliere di Puglia plain and provides a firm foundation for further, more detailed studies.

Abstract

This manuscript outlines the different sedimentary deposits that characterise the Tavoliere di Puglia plain (the second largest Italian plain). The plain is largely covered by Quaternary terrace deposits that unconformably lie on older deposits, most commonly the argille subappennine unit. The outcropping units have been divided into categories of descending rank: the first subdivision is made on the basis of geological domain; within each domain a subdivision of lower rank is based on age; within each age a further subdivision is based on the nature of the sediments. The main map presents an updated synthesis of the geology and geomorphology of the Tavoliere di Puglia plain and provides a firm foundation for further, more detailed studies.
