Italian to English translations [PRO] Geography
Italian term or phrase:forti dislivelli
I know exactly what this means but can't think of a nice, concise way of saying this in English!
L’ambiente aspro, caratterizzato da forti dislivelli, a prima vista non presenta tracce di passate attività minerarie.
I'm drawn to saying "The arid environment with its jagged landscape does not ...", but I'm not sure if jagged would be appropriate as I don't know the area and have no idea exactly how"forti" these "dislivelli" are.
