Geomorphology of the summit area of the Gran Sasso d’Italia (Abruzzo, Italy)

Pages 125-141

Abstract

The geomorphologic study and cartography of the summit area of the Gran Sasso d’Italia are presented. The area is located between the Corno Grande and the Corno Piccolo. The area also contains a geomorphologic rarity, the Ghiacciaio del Calderone, the southernmost glacier in Europe and the only one in the central-Mediterranean area. The present geomorphological scenario was mainly created by glacial processes. Gravitational processes, together with running waters, karst, cryogenic phenomena and human activity have not been of major importance in shaping the present landscape. The survey data have been collected, georeferenced and analysed in a GIS (Geographic Information System) environment and the principal graphic output is represented by a geomorphologic map. Particular attention has been paid to the graphic and informative solutions proposed in order to describe interacting processes and landforms both at the spatial and temporal level.
