Abstract

The paper aims to describe and map the geomorphological and lithological features of the Gulf of Trieste and its eastern coasts and to define its neotectonic behaviour by means of the analysis of the morphoneotectonic evidences. The final map, produced at a scale of 1:30,000, shows the outcome of field investigations carried out along the coast and the sea bottom and a detailed geomorphological classification of the coastline. Published and new data coming from the analysis of archeological remains, geomorphological and sedimentological sea-level indicators and geophysical researches are discussed in order to provide a complete overview of the study area.
