River Flow Formation in the Russian South Urals

  • Conference paper
Rescue of Sturgeon Species in the Ural River Basin

Abstract

Features of small rivers’ flow formation in the Orenburg region of Russia are analyzed. The flood flow dynamics of the small rivers of the South Urals are presented, in relation to changes in the system of agricultural land tenure in the period 1936–1995. Consideration is given to how the balance of water from melted snow on the slope is influenced by relief shapes and holding types, and an estimate of the impact of winter tillage on the melted snow flow factor is provided.
