Geophysics of the Mediterranean Sea Basins

  • Jennifer M. Lort

Abstract

In recent years, the Mediterranean has been the subject of much exploration in the fields of geology and geophysics, both on land and at sea. Reinterpretation and synthesis of these data provide a basis for discussion and define numerous problems still to be resolved. In this chapter the writer presents a summary of the most recent data collected in the Mediterranean basins and attempts a synthesis of the results, referring the reader to other contributions contained in this volume and Volume 4B for detailed regional studies.
