Other Site Characteristics

Il sito esaminato si estende lungo la fascia costiera del versante jonico meridionale ad ovest della foce della Fiumara di Melito. Comprende un tratto di spiaggia larga mediamente da 10 a 25 m. Il clima è tipicamente arido con estati calde e siccitose con precipitazioni medie annue di 700 mm e temperature di 18 °C. Il substrato geologico è rappresentato da formazioni di origine alluvionale. Il paesaggio è stato fortemente alterato dalla presenza di abitazioni residenziali e dalla intensa attività di balneazione. In questarea la presenza di piccoli promontori rocciosi che interrompono la continuità laterale della spiaggia, lazione del moto ondoso e delle correnti, combinata ai notevoli apporti detritici delle fiumare, crea le condizioni di forte accumulo di sabbie e conglomerati lungo la costa. Questa é testimoniata dalla presenza di peculiari ambienti sedimentari particolari come quelli eolici e lacustri. Il sito infatti conserva un tratto di spiaggia con presenza nella parte interna di allineamenti di dune mobili ricoperte da vegetazione psammofila ad Ammophila arenaria e di dune fisse con vegetazione inquadrabile nel Crucianellion-maritimae.
