Abstract

A 1:50,000-scale geomorphological map of the area between the settlements of Frosolone and Trivento(Molise Region, Italy) is presented and discussed in this paper. Field surveys and air photo interpretationsallowed the characterization of the main morphological landforms of the study area, drawn fromthe reduction of an original 1:5,000-scale field map. The landforms have been grouped on the basis ofthe main controlling factors, as follows: i) tectonic and structural landforms; ii) slope landforms; iii) karstlandforms; iv) fluvial landforms. This map shows the distribution of the geomorphic processes presentlyactive, as well as the main relic landforms. Consequently, the collected data aim to provide a useful andeasy tool for land planning policy; in addition, since the study area represents a typical geomorphic scenarioof the southern Apennines, the data produced could be used in developing more widely-applicablelandscape evolution models.
