This paper describes lithostratigraphy and Alpine tectono-metamorphic evolution of the oceanic succession of the Monte Banchetta-Punta Rognosa unit (Italian Western Alps). The oceanic substratum consists of serpentinized peridotites covered by ophicarbonates, documenting therefore exhumation and exposure of the upper mantle at the seafloor in Jurassic times. Upwards, the sedimentary cover begins with polymictic metabreccias and intercalated siliciclastic sediments (considered Late Jurassic - Ear...

Abstract A detailed structural, lithological and petrological study of different transects in the Rasuwa district of central Nepal Himalaya allows the characterization of the tectonostratigraphic architecture of the area. It also facilitates constraining the P-T evolution of the different units within the Lesser (LHS) and Greater (GHS) Himalayan Sequences. Peak P–T conditions obtained for the studied metapelite samples using the pseudosection approach and the Average PT method highlight the exis...
Dopo gli studi pionieristici condotti nei primi anni del 1800 nel settore costiero delle Alpi Marittime da studiosi locali (Risso) e stranieri (Allan, Buckland, De La Beche), i primi studi sistematici nella regione furono condotti a partire dagli anni '40 del 1800 dai geologi e ingegneriminerari del Regno di Sardegna, fra i quali Lorenzo Pareto e Angelo Sismonda, che realizzarono le prime carte geologiche regionali. A partire dal 1860, a seguito della cessione di buona parte del versante meridio...

The geological map of Piemonte Region (Italy) is a graphic representation of the geology of the region, grounded on a large geodatabase, that can be also browsed as an interactive scalable map (GeoPiemonte Map) using a WebGIS application. The Map, produced at 1:250,000 scale, is the first original release of the ‘GeoPiemonte Map’ project. The geological data represented on the map derive from a thorough revision of available geological maps and literature, integrated with unpublished original da...

Abstract The pressure, temperature, and timing (P-T-t) conditions at which CO 2 was produced during the Himalayan prograde metamorphism have been constrained, focusing on the most abundant calc-silicate rock type in the Himalaya. A detailed petrological modeling of a clinopyroxene + scapolite + K-feldspar + plagioclase + quartz ± calcite calc-silicate rock allowed the identification and full characterization – for the first time – of different metamorphic reactions leading to the simultaneous gr...
