This work presents a geomorphometric approach for outlining anomalies of the topographic surface that may be related to geological structures or to geomorphological phenomena. It is based on 2D discrete wavelet transform of digital elevation models. This transform is used to extract singularities of a series of data. This is specifically applied to a digital elevation model, in order to get its detail coefficients and to have evidence about their variations and values. In particular, tThis approach can be helpful for the delineation and identification of landforms singularities as landslides and geological structures. The potential and effectiveness of this approach is shown by an application to a case study about a large deep-seated landslide, located at the central-south front of the Apennine in South Italy.
