Abstract

The evolution of the main ancient rivers in the central Po Plain is presented. The study of the present and ancient hydrography shows the presence of at least three cases of underfit streams. Particularly two parameters are measured: the length and the radius of curvature of the meander belts. The data show that ancient hydrography presents geometrical parameters about five times larger than the actual hydrography. Underfit steam marks allow us to know the former discharges and to reconstruct the environmental evolution of the central Po plain in the last 15000 years.
