The paper presents a method for estimating and mapping – at detailed scale (1:5000) – the thickness of pyroclastic cover beds resting on calcareous bedrock. This method, tested in the study area of Mount Albino (Campania region, southern Italy), makes use mainly of information gathered from in situ investigations, managed and processed in a geographical information system environment via a geostatistical interpolation technique (i.e. ordinary kriging) and finally integrated and amended by adopting a heuristic approach. Given its easy applicability and affordable costs, the proposed method can be used in similar geological contexts where knowledge of the spatial distribution of pyroclastic cover beds is a requirement for understanding and predicting slope instability processes.
