Stratigraphic, sedimentological and petrographical investigations have been performed: A) on the unconformity to define its areal and geometric characteristics; B) on the Variscan basement and Triassic rocks found below the unconformity; and C) on the Middle Jurassic Genna Selole Fm (Dieni et al., 1983) resting upon it to highlight the features, lifetime and areal extension of the E Sardinia - Corsica high.

More recent studies of the Asmari Formation have been conducted on facies and sedimentary environment [66,5,6,6252,4,58,61,65] This paper reports in the subsurface sedimentological study of Asmari Formation, whose results could correlate and compare to a better understanding of the outcrops Asmari Formation in adjacent areas.

This plot has provided sedimentological evidences which supported the fluviatile environments of deposition.
This section was studied in details from a sedimentological point of view by Abdel-Motelib et al., 2010 (in press), revealing that the sequence was deposited in a deltaic setting reflecting fluvial to lacustrine facies deposits.
