Course overview

The Summer School in Geomorphological Mapping in Tectonically Active Areas consists in a theoretical/practical course with the aim of disseminating the methodologies and criteria for geomorphological mapping and survey in seismic areas, bringing together students and researchers from different countries where seismic activity is studied from both a scientific and an applied point of view. 

The students will be introduced to the new geomorphological legend recently launched by ISPRA (Istituto Superiore per la Protezione e la Ricerca Ambientale - Ministero dell'Ambiente e della sicurezza energetica), in collaboration with AIGeo (Italian Association of Physical Geography and Geomorphology). Theoretical lessons in the classroom will be followed by exercises and field surveys with final cartographic restitution, discussion and comparisons on the work carried out. The areas that will be investigated are those affected by the recent 2016 earthquake in Central Italy where more than 7000 surface geomorphological effects were recorded.

The course is directed to graduates in Geological, Natural, Environmental and Forestry Sciences (and equivalent degrees also obtained abroad), doctoral students, PhDs, professional geologists and employees of public and private authorities.


The School, organised by the University of Camerino, is part of the University's internationalisation initiative, the main aim of which is to meet and integrate the scientific communities of different countries, with a particular focus on young people. In this regard, the proposal has received the patronage of the IAG (International Association of Geomorphologists) and AIGeo (Associazione Italiana di Geografia Fisica e Geomorfologia).
