Abstract

Clayey terrains outcropping in many parts of Italy are frequently affected by accelerated erosion processes producing landforms known as calanchi (intensely dissected landscapes with rill and gully landforms) and biancane (bare cones and hummocks). The factors controlling the development of these 2 landforms are still poorly understood. This study was undertaken to identify the material properties of calanchi and biancane
