The Calabrian peninsula is undergoing rapid degradation at the present time by erosion and landsliding. These phenomena are aggravated by the reduced strength of many of the rock formations forming the peninsula, resulting from Alpine tectonic movements. Maps showing landslides and related features were prepared, with the aid of aerial photographs, in conjunction with the geological re-mapping of the peninsula at a scale of 1 : 25 000.
