Abstract

The landscape around the summit of the Monte Beigua Massif (1287 m a.s.l.) is characterised by the accumulation of large blocks without any source rock faces at their head and by some relict rocky relief. The aims of the present paper are to analyse systematically these landforms, to provide an explanation of their genesis, and to reconstruct the paleoclimatic evolution of this area. Eleven block accumulations have been analysed from a morphological, morphometrical and sedimentological point of view. - (NF)
