Summary: The Adriatic platform is a world famous sedimentological
phenomenon and an inexhaustible treasury of data about sedimentation
conditions and environments from the Middle Triassic to the Middle Eocene
(ca 18o million years). As such it plays a significant role in
understanding of global geological and sedimentological processes in the
circum-Mediterranean area. The project is planed to deal with detailed
research, interpretation, reconstruction and correlation of facies,
sedimentary conditions and environments within the Adriatic carbonate
platform. The results of this research will contribute to the general
world scientific geological understanding of circum Meditteranean area.
Mainly answering the questions dealing with the extent of the platform,
its evolution and the dinamics of changes of depositional environments
through tine and space.Providing also the solution to problems dealing
with rhythmic, cyclic, vertical and lateral changes of depositional
environments caused by global sea-level rise or fall, regional and local
authocyclic processes and climatic processes.
Research goals: The main purpose in investigation is the systematic
collecting of nummerous data according to which the dilema of many
diferent sedimentary environments appeared on Adriatic carbonate
platformand sedimentary processes associated, could be resolved.
Correlation of large number of data from nummerous investigated localyties
could prove the answere to many how exested questions such as: Where, when
and for how long the single, small of large, environments exested; Their
lateral and vertical relationship; The cause of their formation, duration
and transsition in time scale record; The role of global eustasy within
depositional sequences; How important were the processes of
tectono-eustasy in local and regional scale; What caused the rhytmical
repetition of cycles superimposed on hierarchicly higher ordered scale?
According to key possition of Adriatic carbonate platform indetermining
and explaining much wider, Circum-Mediteranienplatform area, each new
scientific result in its investigationconsequently contributes to the
world-wide interest in carbonateplatforms in general and allow us to keep
in pace with Worldsgeological scientific atlainments.
