[automatically translated] The "Camporeale Ridge" (NW Sicily): structural significance Within deep-seated tectonics. The "Camporeale Ridge" is a morphostructural element cropping out in NW Sicily. Detailed structural and stratigraphic analysis Carried out in the study area Allows us to reconstruct a main EW-trending anticline partially exposed along the ridge. Its development is two to the action of high-angle faults transpressive Which bound Both northwards and southwards site of the ridge. Seismic reflection profiles crossing the study area images on tectonic stack made up of carbonates rocks (Trapanese Units, TP) overlain in Numidian flysch and Neogene terrigenous units along a low angle thrust plane. The profile images Also That high angle faults affected the Trapanese Unit (TP) locally producing a back-verging younger structural high.
