Abstract

Man-made terraces represent both a cultural and environmental asset. This important human modifi cation has determined changes in the original balance of geomorphological and geo-hydrological factors, representing a human interference with the geomorphic system. The abandonment of lands, according to altered socioeconomic condi- tions and climate change determine an increase of erosion and geomorphological risk. Terraces on the slopes of the Bay of San Fruttuoso di Camogli, in Portofi no Park (Italy), have been analysed through historical, social and eco- nomic research, cartographic and photographic analysis, geomorphological fi eld surveys, meteorological-climatic analyses and modelling of sediment yield with the aim to address management and mitigation of risk
