Description :
The possible interactions between tectonics and landform formation in an active chain are examined by considering the case example of the Southern Apennines fold-and-thrust belt, in which frontal accretion and back-arc extension coexisted. The study was carried out by the integration of chronological and kinematic constraints deriving from a vast geological literature with those obtained by a geomorphological analysis. The latter was addressed to recognition and distinction of the main stages of the morphotectonic evolution of the belt in order to obtain a chronologically constrained reconstruction of the tectonic and erosional events occurred.
