Abstract

Four small areas of Messinian (Upper Miocene) age gypsum, outcropping in western Sicily, are described. They were specifically chosen to describe a type of medium-sized form : dome-like hills which are covered by a mosaic of smaller forms, related to both categories : different types of karren and of expansion forms. The AA. discuss models of the dynamics of these gypsum outcrops which are illustrated with the support of large scale geomorphological maps
