Active fault found under Adriatic Sea

TUCSON, Jan. 24 (UPI) -- A U.S.-led international team of geologists has discovered an active fault is creating new Dalmatian Islands off the Croatian coast in the Adriatic Sea. The fault, which is also creating more of the Dinaride Mountains of Croatia, previously was believed to have stopped growing 20 million to 30 million years ago. The fault is being created as the leading edge of the Eurasian plate scrapes and slides its way over a former piece of the African plate called the South Adria microplate, lead researcher Assistant Professor Richard Bennett of the University of Arizona-Tucson said. [Interestingly, this correlates to the I AM America Freedom Star Map, as a new bay is prophesied to form northwest of the Adriatic Sea.]
