On the Apennine the remnants of five glaciations have been recognized, dated from Middle to Late Pleistocene. The chronological framework of the Middle and Late Pleistocene sediments is based on39Ar/40Ar datings on three tephra layers and on the recognition, with geochemical methods, of tephras of known age. For the Last Glacial Maximum the chronological framework was established using14C datings. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.
