Description :
The aims of this work are : to improve the knowledge of the structural arrangement of some Italian areas affected by tectonics active in recent or historical times, and to aid the individuation of possible strike-slip faults of regional importance, through the careful examination of the drainage network patterns. To this end a methodology has been defined to infer the existence of strike-slip faults on the basis of the quantitative characteristics of surface drainage and to verify whether the activity of such faults involves variations or rotations of the preferential stream orientations. Two areas of Central Italy have been investigated.
