Abstract

A new geomorphologic survey has been carried out along coastal sectors of southern Calabria (Capo dell'Armi) and north-eastern Sicily (Capo Milazzo e Capo Schisò), Here, the occurrence of raised Holocene shorelines has been confirmed. In order to reconstruct the history of vertical deformation of the analyzed areas, the elevation of all the morphologic, biological and archaeological palaeo-sea level markers has been measured. These data, accompanied by absolute and archaeological dating, allowed us to assess a contribution of coseismic deformation, related to active faulting, to Holocene relative sea level change.
