Abstract

The extreme rainfall event around 14-15 September 2012 (estimated cumulative value of approx. 300 mm in the summit area of the Gran Sasso d’Italia mountain range, Central Italy above the elevation of 2500 m) generated an ephemeral epiglacial lake at the bottom of the depression of the Ghiacciaio del Calderone. In this short communication a description of the atmospheric triggering phenomena and of the ephemeral lake evolution is presented and some geomorphological remarks briefly discussed.
