Současné trendy v zrnitostním složení sedimentů štěrkových lavic toků Moravskoslezských Beskyd – příkladová studie Sihelský potok


Changes in sediment delivery to mountain stream channels are a typical feature of present-day geomorphological evolution of channel morphology. There is a high level of transport of coarse-grained sediments typical for Carpathian region built by flysch rocks. Evaluation of the effect of man-induced changes in the study area is focused on the quantification of this phenomenon through the use of automated sizing of coarse-grained sediments. Tendency in the composition of gravel bars is studied along the longitudinal profile and with regard to adjacent landforms.
