Abstract: A regional study has provided a preliminary outline of the resurgence characteristics of the most important springs in the Basilicata Region. The major aquifers occur in mainly carbonate formations, generally stratigraphic-structural units deriving from the Campanian-Lucanian Platform or the Lagonero Basin. The aquicludes and local impervious plugs are of a limited variety; in most cases they consist of complex flysch formations of an essentially clayey-marly nature. Within the context of the sample of springs examined, the commonest causes of resurgence are permeability thresholds, followed by the outcropping of the piezometric surface or given permeability limits. After having classified the resurgences on the basis of the structural and lithological characteristics of the parent aquifers, the regime of the Apennine carbonate springs was reviewed and their potential was ascertained, as was the variability of flows over the observation period.
