Preliminary observations on the cracking of soils of the marine Pliocene clays in the valley of the Era, Volterra (Pisa)



Annali dell' Istituto Sperimentale per lo Studio e la Difesa del Suolo, Firenze 4: 143-149



Two sections, one parallel with the slope and the other perpendicular to it, showed that in spring large undulating vertical cracks were formed in the soil, whereas in the underlying clay polygonal fragmentation occurred.
