Abstract [sv]

Halvön Mani i södra Peloponnesos, Grekland, ligger enbart 50 km från subduktionszonen Hellenic arc. Det medför att aktiva tektoniska processer påverkar geomorfologin. Genom fjärranalys, analys av digital terrängmodell samt genom ett fem dagars fältarbete har en del av södra halvöns geomorfologi studerats. Recenta processer som idag skapar landformer har identifierats. Av dessa är det främst kemisk vittring och tektonik som dominerar. Även relikta landformer studerades för att skapa en komplettare bild över området. Två stycken stenfält upptäcktes på en av uddarna, som troligen skapats innan udden lyfts upp till nivån den befinner sig idag. Ett konglomerat överlagrade kalkstenen i en av vikarna och vittnar om stora massrörelser som skett då markytan även här var lägre än idag. Ett pediment finns på den västra sidan av berget Sagias. Asymmetrin beror troligen på en kombination av tektonik och havsnivåförändringar.

Abstract [en]

The Mani peninsula in the south of Peloponnesos, Greece, is situated only 50 km from the subduction zone of the Hellenic arc. The active, tectonic processes taking place influence the geomorphology of the area. Through the use of remote sensing, analysis of a Digital Terrain Model and a five-day fieldwork study, certain areas of the southern peninsula’s geomorphology were examined for this project including recent processes that create landforms to date. Among those, chemical weathering and tectonics dominate. Also relict landforms were studied to get a greater understanding of the area. Fieldwork resulted in the discovery of two fields of rocks in one of the capes, which most likely were created before the cape underwent uplift to its current level. Also, a conglomerate superimposition of limestone in one of the bays showed indication that great mass movements took place when the surface was lower than today. A pediment is located on the west side of the Sagia Mountain. The asymmetry is probably due to a combination of tectonics and sea level changes.
