By Malgorzata Wistuba

In this thesis, coupling among the supply of slope fabric into valley flooring and river erosion is taken into account to be an element within the evolution of mid-altitude, forested mountains. Analyses of slope-channel interactions have been made in ten small catchments with specific emphasis on landsliding-erosion suggestions. An unique, new dendrogeomorphic method was once utilized to figure out the cyclic incidence of landsliding and erosion in the course of fresh a long time. the result of dendrochronological experiences exhibit that the methods studied are strongly interdependent. Fluvial erosion can set off landsliding through undermining slope bases. Landsliding can accentuate erosion by way of providing slope fabric into valley flooring. the result of dendrochronological reports have accepted a greater figuring out of the comfort saw in components the place landslides and erosion are coupled. A scheme used to be confirmed which describes the significance of coupling within the evolution of mid-mountain landscape.

Example text

The two mountain massifs chosen are the closest parts of the Carpathian and Sudeten mountain belts (Fig. 1), thus they are characterised by as similar climatic and water conditions as possible, typical for the temperate climatic zone, transitional between maritime and continental. At the same time, the relief of the two areas studied has developed in different structural and geological conditions. In both mountain areas, in the Moravskoslezské Beskydy and in the Hruby´ Jeseník, I have selected 10 catchments of small streams (Fig.
