Abstract

Magmatic intrusive rocks (Western Adamello Tonalite, diorite and gabrodiorite, with related dykes) outcrop in this region. Contact metamorphic rocks are also known from the Baitone area. The present physionomy ofthe valley is related to various morphogenetic agents. Those that acted for a longer time and more deeply are the glacial and periglacial ones. Typical erosional and depositional glacial forms are present all over the region. On the basis of morphological, stratigraphical, textural observations and of the weathering ofthe deposits as well as the degree oflichenization and the soil development, the Authors tried to differenziate the various glacial deposits. The last century moraines and those ofthe Late Pleistocene are easy to distinguish. Landforms related to periglacial environments such as rock-glaciers, protalus ramparts, avalanche tracks and cones have been recognized. Recent debris-flow lobes are present in the Malga Valley resting on stabilized debris and dejection cones.
