Abstract

Describes the problem of soil erosion in Italy which is very widespread, particularly in the south. Two types of badland are distinguished: calanchi which are rill and gully landscapes with steep bare slopes, and biancane which are residual hummocks in part the end phase of calanchi erosion. The problem is now so serious that government action is contemplated. -K.Clayton
