AbstractThe study Area lies on the border between Calabria and Lucania, close by the carbonate massifs of the Lauria Mountains. Like these, it is characterized by outcrops of carbonate rocks belonging to units forming part of the Campanian-Lucanian Platform. Three groups of springs located on the NW and SE sides of the carbonate massifs have been investigated. The study was conducted by means of geological and structural ground surveys accompanied by hydrogeological measurements on the springs and existing boreholes. The detailed knowledge thus acquired was then interpreted within the context of information available on the Calabrian-Lucanian Apennines. The average potential of the aquifer was determined, together with the principal methods of water flow therein, emphasis being placed on the role played by the individual groups of springs. In particular, the way fracturing influences water flow was ascertained, the hydrodynamic properties of the aquifer being quantified. The effect of karstification associated with the activity of the old Pleistocene lakes of Mercure and Noce was also established.
