Abstract

Sand composition and Chemical Index of Alteration (CIA) of parent rocks, soil and fluvial sand of the Savuto River watershed, Calabria (Italy), were used to evaluate the modifications of source rocks through different sections of the basin, characterized by different geomorphic processes, in a sub-humid Mediterranean climate. The study area provides a good opportunity to study some of the processes (i.e. chemical weathering, slope instability and erosion) controlling landscape development of a drainage basin
