Abstract

Characteritics badlands are incised into Plio-Pleistocene clays in Basilicata, creating steep, scarp slopes with knife-edge ridges (calanchi) and small dome-shaped forms (biancanes). This paper presents results from a 1997-2003 study into the rates at which badland landforms evolve and erode in the uniform Plio-Pleistocene silty-clay lithology of southern Italy. The main controls on these rates are investigated, and the extent to which it is possible to extrapolate these rates over time is discussed in the context of pediment development and associated scarp retreat
