The contribution of geomorphology to the mapping of Quaternary deposits: the CARG example in the Trento region - II Quaternario Italian Journal of Quaternary Sciences, 9(1), 1996, 239-248 - The conceptual and methodological differences between geological and geomorphological investigations are outlined, as well as the role and possible contributions of geomorphology to the survey of Quaternary deposits. This paper reports on the approach taken while applying geomorphological techniques to the geological mapping of Quaternary deposits in the Province of Trento (N Italy), which were performed for the 1:50,000 scale Geological Map of Italy (CARG project). The procedure of successive approximations, simplifications, detailed studies and improved definitions, which was adopted to pass from a "traditional" Quaternary legend consisting of simplified geomorphologicalfeatures to the specific legend proposed for the CARG project, is illustrated. The Trento surveys are further discussed through the use of a mapping example. The role played by the Trento Geological Survey in proposing and applying the above-mentioned method is underlined, particularly in regards to the coordination of 1:50,000 scale mapping of alpine Quaternary formations and in the digitising of mappable elements. Finally, some examples of the role of geomorphologicalinvestigations in identifying and characterising Quaternary deposits are presented.
