Abstract

In Carrara marble basins, the long and intensive quarrying activities have produced extensive dump deposits, locally known as ravaneti. The morphological and sedimentological analyses of depositional lobes resulted in a classification of 3 types of lobe, based on fabric-morphometry relationships allowing the identification of different flow dynamics. In Carrara marble basins, the anomalous frequency with which debris flows tend to be triggered by medium-intensity rainstorms is due to the recent increases in silt dump produced by modern quarrying techniques
