Abstract

Palaeomagnetic results are presented from the Abruzzi and northwestern Umbria (Monte Nerone area) for the Cretaceous and the combined Jurassic and Cretaceous timespans. The results for the Cretaceous, when combined with previously published work, indicate that both the Abruzzi and northwestern Umbria underwent a post-Cretaceous tectonic rotation relative to Apulia. The rotation of the Abruzzi is 40° clockwise while that of northwestern Umbria is 22-23° counterclockwise. Apulia itself has been rotated only 11° relative to Africa according to a recently proposed apparent polar wander path for Africa.
