Abstract

We discuss 2 succeeding phases in the evolution of Lipari island. At first, 8 orders of marine terraces were recognized on the ground of geomorphological, sedimentological and paleontological evidences. The U 234/U 238 dataings of the fossil shells recovered from terraces III and V have allowed to set the age of these ancient shorelines. These datings implemented with those from the literature, make the basis for the construction of an uplift/sinking diagram. From this latter it seems that a sinking has occurred approximately during the Eutyrrhenian. The subsequent rise took place at a rate of 0.73-0.33cm/yr.
