Abstract

Qualitative and quantitative geomorphological investigation has been carried out in a restricted area of the upper Orcia River basin (about 10 km2) called Landola sample area, near Siena, NE of the Monte Amiata volcano (Tuscany). The pliocene marine claystones outcropping in this area have been uplifted during the quaternary up to several hundreds of meters above sea-level and are now rapidly eroding, resulting in one of the highest values of suspended sediment loads in Italy. - (NF)
