Record #202867:

The geomorphology of the Dolomites from a geomorphodiversity viewpoint / Mario Panizza.

Title: The geomorphology of the Dolomites from a geomorphodiversity viewpoint / Mario Panizza.
Author(s): Panizza, Mario.
Date: 2011.
In: Geografia Fisica e Dinamica Quaternaria. (2011.), Vol. 34(1) (2011)
Abstract: Explains term "geomorphodiversity" (introduced by author) and describes application to Dolomites, noting characteristics that distinguish them from all other mountains (i.e., Dolomites are extrinsically geomorphodiverse on a global scale, and also on a regional (Alpine) scale in relation to morphotectodynamics, morphotectostatics, and morpholithology). Dolomites are intrinsically diverse from a morphoclimatic viewpoint, considering their polygenesis linked to pre- or inter-glacial, glacial, periglacial, fluvial, relict, dormant or active landforms. Identifies features for which intrinsic geomorphodiversity on regional scale is high (landslides and karst landforms, e.g.) and more limited (talus cones or scree slopes, e.g.). Discusses how geomorphodiversity makes Dolomites important for geomorphological research and, together with beauty and unique landscape, has led to inclusion in World Heritage List.
