The Island of Pianosa is located in the Tuscan Archipelago, a few kilometers south-east of Elba Island, approximately 40 km from Corsica, and 50 km from the Tuscany coast. It represents the emerged portion of a long N-S submarine ridge connecting the Island of Capraia with Scoglio d'Africa, a very small islet located west of the Island of Montecristo. Pianosa has a sub-triangular shape with a similar to 10 km(2) surface area, a coastal perimeter of approximately 18 km, and a maximum height of 29 m a.s.l. The Pianosa landscape has primarily been formed by coastal and karst processes, which have resulted in numerous related landforms.

Abstract

The Island of Pianosa is located in the Tuscan Archipelago, a few kilometers south-east of Elba Island, approximately 40 km from Corsica, and 50 km from the Tuscany coast. It represents the emerged portion of a long N-S submarine ridge connecting the Island of Capraia with Scoglio d'Africa, a very small islet located west of the Island of Montecristo. Pianosa has a sub-triangular shape with a similar to 10 km(2) surface area, a coastal perimeter of approximately 18 km, and a maximum height of 29 m a.s.l. The Pianosa landscape has primarily been formed by coastal and karst processes, which have resulted in numerous related landforms. Due to the particular scientific interest of the island, the Geological Survey of Italy has promoted research on Pianosa Island aimed at the development of a 1:12,500 scale geomorphological map.
