Abstract

The Cassino plain is located in the end-sector of the Latina Valley, between the Simbruini-Ernici-Cairo Mts. hydrostructure (NW) and the Venafro Mts. hydrostructure (NE). Both aquifers belong to the Lazio-Abruzzi domain, with limestone ranging from platform to slope facies. Terrigenous sequences as well as late-Quaternary lacustrine and fluvial deposits cover the carbonatic hydrostructures in the low-land areas. After compressional stages related to the chain-growth, extensional tectonic has intensively characterized the investigated area. Along the plain sector, the ridges of Trocchio and Porchio Mts. are made by platform limestone and they are bounded by three normal faults. Two plentiful springs with bicarbonate-calcium features are located at the plain borders: Gari spring (discharge of 13-18 m3/s, elevation of 40-30 m a.s.l.) and Peccia spring (discharge of 5 m3/s, elevation of 29-25 m a.s.l.).
