Morphological changes in rivers of South Tyrol (Italian Alps) attributable to climate variations since the Little Ice Age
MetadataShow full item record
This scientific paper will investigate the consequences of climate change and glacier extension which occurred after the Little Ice Age (early 19th century –early 20th century) in several river catchments within South Tyrol (Autonomous Province of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy),where the anthropic influence during the same time frame can be considered as minor. The analysis of evolutionary trajectories of river morphologies (river corridor scale) will be performed in both glacialized and not glacialized basins, considering the changes that occurred at the basin scale. The target audience is mainly scientists, but managers should be interested too as results inform about the magnitude and timing of natural river dynamics.
