The Mediterranean Littoral

Article metrics


THE Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche has undertaken, through the agency of the National Committee for Geography in conjunction with the Institute of General Geography of the University of Pisa, an inquiry into recent conditions affecting sandy beaches along the Italian littoral, and in this connexion is publishing a series of monographs dealing with the coastline in ten regional sections, each of which is to form the subject of a separate volume. In this way, reviving the studies of eminent physiographers of the past, it is intended to present a chain of facts which will serve for a systematic research into the regimen of Italian beaches and so foster the advancement of scientific geography, at the same time aiding in the development of maritime engineering.
