Abstract

The AA. present a geomorphic and morpho-structural analysis of an understudied, 400 km2 part of the central-southern Apennines covering the Early Pliocene and been subjected to protacted, deep erosion since then. The study reveals a high-relief landscape dominated by several morphostructures including high-standing, resistant Mesozoic and early Tertiary carbonates and intervening, erodible Tertiary siliciclastics. Quaternary deposits are few, scattered, and cannot generally be used for reconstructing paleo-base levels ; however, this study defines and identifies several paleo-uplands and pediments that may be linked to paleo-base levels. - (NF)
