Primary objective of this work is the high resolution geophysical study of the Miramare Riviera (Gulf of Trieste, Northern Adriatic Sea). We used two different sub-bottom profiling equipments and methodologies: CHIRP and BOOMER. The single-channel seismic reflection dataset was calibrated by four boreholes for depth conversion. Average seismic velocities of shallow sediments vary in the range between 1930 and 2020 m/s. Post-plyocenic sediments exhibit flat, sub-horizontal depositional trend and thickness varying in the range between 5 and 25 m. They are locally eroded by buried paleo-channels and they lay on Flysch bedrock characterized by highly irregular morphology. Top of Flysch is disrupted by several faults: the most prominent one exhibit maximum slip around 10 m and runs sub-parallel to the coastline.

Abstract

Primary objective of this work is the high resolution geophysical study of the Miramare Riviera (Gulf of Trieste, Northern Adriatic Sea). We used two different sub-bottom profiling equipments and methodologies: CHIRP and BOOMER. The single-channel seismic reflection dataset was calibrated by four boreholes for depth conversion. Average seismic velocities of shallow sediments vary in the range between 1930 and 2020 m/s. Post-plyocenic sediments exhibit flat, sub-horizontal depositional trend and thickness varying in the range between 5 and 25 m. They are locally eroded by buried paleo-channels and they lay on Flysch bedrock characterized by highly irregular morphology. Top of Flysch is disrupted by several faults: the most prominent one exhibit maximum slip around 10 m and runs sub-parallel to the coastline.
