For the first time, Pleistocene deposits from Croatian part of Adriatic Sea are compared in one document. Interpretation is performed using wells data (cores, cuttings and logs), acquired seismic profiles, modal analyses as well as discriminant analysis. To the beginning of Pleistocene, in entire Adriatic basin, sediments from Outer Santerno formation are deposited. During Early Pleistocene, two active depressions are created, both with different sediment evolution. Over North Adriatic area, Porto Garibaldi, Carola and Ravenna formations are founded. The majority of their sediments are deposited in Italy; therefore their names are taken form Italian nomenclature. Sources for this deposits were Alpine and Apennine mountain chains, together with mid and Southern Italy volcanos. Pleistocene deposits from Southern Adriatic belong to the newly established Melita formation. Furthermore, indicated source areas for Melita formation were Dinaridic mountain chain and volcanic activity located in mid and Southern Italy.
