Essentially these authors have documented and modelled the sedimentary successions through direct observations and high-resolution seismic surveys, and their numerous internal erosion breaks, which develop during the final part of a sea-level fall, the lowstand, the beginning of the sea-level rise, the sea-level rise, and a present highstand. Particular attention has been paid to high sediment fluvial input areas such as those of the Po and Tiber rivers. The Po River extended southward across half of the shallow Adriatic Sea during the lowstand.
