Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The subject of this research, the calanchi landscape, often generally considered as badlands by non-Italian authors, is, in fact, made up of many singular landforms, each of which (calanco) corresponds to a more or less extended hydrographic unit. The dynamics are mainly the result of the action of the particularly aggressive climatic factors (such as the Mediterranean rainfall regime) on weak substrata. The morphogenetic activity is not only limited to channel erosion, but it is also due to repeated superficial slides, so that it should in fact be better to consider the calanco as the result of a combined erosion process
