Mediterranean sedimentary Basin". The aim of this research topic is to teach the PhD student a powerful tool as the use of the integrated stratigraphy for the study of the tectono-sedimentary evolution of the sedimentary basins. This approach will lead the student a) to detail times in which the sedimentary events occurred; b) to recognize the general causes which drove yhose events /climatic, tectonic). The Mediterranean area chosen for the 2009-2012 PhD research is the SE coast of the Anatolian Peninsula (Turkey), in particular the Mut and Adana Basins.
