In this reply we stress the role played by the Sardinia-Corsica microplate in the geodynamic evolution of the present-day W-Mediterranean during Tertiary. We answer to each of the seven remarks of the discussion proposed by Dieni & Massari, mainly concerning misleading scientific literature on the age of deposits involved in the strike-slip faults of NE Sardinia. Finally, we summarise and best outline the tectonic features of the whole Sardinia and Corsica microplate, which leads us to discuss the interaction between strike-slip tectonics and the N-Apennine evolution during Oligo-Miocene.

Abstract

In this reply we stress the role played by the Sardinia-Corsica microplate in the geodynamic evolution of the present-day W-Mediterranean during Tertiary. We answer to each of the seven remarks of the discussion proposed by Dieni & Massari, mainly concerning misleading scientific literature on the age of deposits involved in the strike-slip faults of NE Sardinia. Finally, we summarise and best outline the tectonic features of the whole Sardinia and Corsica microplate, which leads us to discuss the interaction between strike-slip tectonics and the N-Apennine evolution during Oligo-Miocene.
