Abstract
  • We present data related to the water divide of the Apennines, and its relation to the highest mountains. Frequently, the highest mountains do not coincide with the divide, but they are rather located toward the foreland to the 'east'. This is interpreted as induced by the faster 'eastward' propagating tectonic wave generated by the retreat of the Apennines subduction zone during Pliocene and Quaternary times (10-30 mm/a) with respect to average denudation rates (<1 mm/a). The vertical and horizontal offset of the highest mountains with respect to the divide indicate tectonics are generally faster than denudation rate when subduction rolls back in a steady state, and lithologies of the outcropping belt are fairly homogeneous. The slowing of the subduction, shaly lithologies in the 'eastern' foreland slope, and transfer zones may instead determine an offset of the highest mountains with respect to the divide toward the hinterland to the 'west'. The morphology of the Apennines is determined by undulations of at least three different wavelengths: 1) at the belt scale (about 150 km) controlled by subduction scale processes; 2) at the grabens and horsts scale (about 5-15 km); 3) at the local scale (0.5- 3 km) as determined by the peculiar denudation rates. Along strike, the divide shows a wavelength of 200-300 km, with vertical undulations of 1000-1500 m, possibly due to structural transfer zones. (literal)
