In this paper a geothematic map at 1:180,000 scale of the Daunian Subapennine, a sector of the Southern Apennines Chain, located in the Apulia Region (Southern Italy) is presented. The map was produced by analyzing, redrawing and integrating the official and historical geological sheets, at different scale, edited by the Italian Geological Service, ISPRA (ex APAT), between the 50s and 60s. The analyzed geological sheets were compiled by different authors, due to the extension of the area to be mapped. For this reason, the geological sheets do not provide an univocal geo-lithological framework of the whole area. The uncertain interpretations of the geological terms contained in the different geological sheets have been checked and updated by using recent geological bibliography. The result is a geolithological map, at regional scale, realized through a homogeneous method, which provides information on the lithologies outcropping in the Daunian Subapennine, useful mainly in the preliminary phase of designing in the engineering and land planning fields.

Abstract

In this paper a geothematic map at 1:180,000 scale of the Daunian Subapennine, a sector of the Southern Apennines Chain, located in the Apulia Region (Southern Italy) is presented. The map was produced by analyzing, redrawing and integrating the official and historical geological sheets, at different scale, edited by the Italian Geological Service, ISPRA (ex APAT), between the 50s and 60s. The analyzed geological sheets were compiled by different authors, due to the extension of the area to be mapped. For this reason, the geological sheets do not provide an univocal geo-lithological framework of the whole area. The uncertain interpretations of the geological terms contained in the different geological sheets have been checked and updated by using recent geological bibliography. The result is a geolithological map, at regional scale, realized through a homogeneous method, which provides information on the lithologies outcropping in the Daunian Subapennine, useful mainly in the preliminary phase of designing in the engineering and land planning fields.
