Abstract

In the last decades a series of offshore seismic and stratigraphic surveys revealed the presence of several infilled palaeo tidal inlets which punctuate the subsoil of the northern Adriatic shelf. The morphologic, morphometric and sedimentary characteristics of these landforms constitute remarkable database for the reconstruction of palaeo coastline positions and to constrain the post-LGM sealevel rise, especially during the beginning of the Holocene period. This work provides a first overview on the significance of the Adriatic tidal inlets and their response to the interplay between upstream and downstream controls
